Theo McLain.  "Border Loses Two Sportsmen" - The border area lost two distinguished former sportsmen and community supporters over the weekend with the passing of Theo McLain of Calais and George Lowe of St. Stephen. Mr. McLain, who was a correspondent for the "Courier" for many years, was in his 75th year.... Mr. McLain passed away at his Calais residence on March 10. Mr. McLain was born in Milltown, Maine, the son of George and Emma (Chapais) McLain and resided in the Calais area all of his life. A retired U.S. postal worker, Mr. McLain was a popular singer and athlete in his youth and was a very active individual until the time of his death.
Playing catcher's position on the famous St. Croix baseball team of the 1930s, Mr. McLain helped lead it to both the New Brunswick Championship and the Maritime Championship in each of the seven years that he was on the club. The entire team of that era is enshrined in the Sports Hall of Fame. A former teammate, Harry Boles of St. Stephen, remembers that "He was very popular with the team. He was captain for several years, and we all liked him." Willard Babb, who worked in the U.S. Postal Service with Mr. McLain agreed with Mr. Boles about the effect that his former co-worker had on people. "I don't think anybody could ever say anything bad about him." Mr. McLain was a familiar sight to Calais residents as he delivered their mail for 38 years, until his retirement in 1966. Harley Clark, the present Assistant Post-Master, described Mr. McLain as being "quite the man. He was always very cooperative and dedicated." Mr. McLain wrote the 'Calais Briefs' for the 'St. Croix Courier' for a number of years and, according to senior 'Courier' staff member Evelyn Perkins, "Theo was very popular and always knew what was going on. He had fantastic coverage of events." Mr. McLain is survived by his wife, Marjorie Pender McLain, Calais; three daughters, Mrs. Peter (Gail) Berry of Stuttgart, West Germany, Miss Linda and Miss Paula McLain, both of Calais; one brother, George McLain of Houlton; one sister, Mrs. Florence Dubay of Montpelier.
