Society of United Fishermen - Lodge No. 2, Winterton



The SUF No. 2 Collection consists of handwritten documents, books, postcards and photos produced by the Society of United Fishermen Lodge No. 2 located in Winterton, NL. The documents range in date from 1873 to 2009.

The Society of United Fishermen (SUF) is a society founded in 1862 by Rev. George Gardener, a Church of England clergyman. The fraternal organisation provided fellowship and an established support system for its members at a time when very few services were available to Newfoundland's fishermen and their families. In 1874 the SUF No.2 was established in Scilly Cove (renamed Winterton in 1912). The collection also contains documents produced by the SUF Ladies Council starting in 1950.
