166. Smallwood, J.R. Smallwood, J.R. The Joseph R. Smallwood papers represent a partial record of the political career and personal life of Newfoundland's longest serving - premier. Smallwood, one of the forces behind Newfoundland's joining confederation, was first involved in journalism and later radio as the host - of the hugely popular Barrelman radio program . He entered the political arena in June 1946 as a member of the National Convention to decide - the country's future. Smallwood had campaigned openly as a Confederate and, once elected, appointed himself the champion of this cause. - He constantly brought the issue up in the debates in the Colonial Building. Through his efforts and those of the pro-confederates he - surrounded himself with, Smallwood convinced a majority of Newfoundlanders that Confederation with Canada would bring huge benefits. His - campaign to do so thrust him into the local as well as the Canadian spotlight. When the first provincial election was called his Liberal party won a - resounding victory and Smallwood went on to serve as Premier of the Newfoundland from 1949 to 1971. He remained active in politics until - 1977 when he retired to a career of writing and publishing the Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador. - - The papers in this collection span most of Smallwood's life, starting with correspondence from the 1920s when he was a journalist in New York. - They continue through his political career and beyond. There are over one hundred files from the Department of Economic Development, dating - from the early 1950s, when Smallwood was the department's minister and Alfred Valdmanis the director. Together, they were responsible for - the new industries which sprang up in the province during that time. Also notable are the hundreds of telegrams Smallwood kept from those - who supported his strong stand in the International Wood Workers Association (I.W.A.) strike of 1959. The fact that Smallwood kept these - items among his personal papers speaks to his own intimate involvement. In 1977, Smallwood retired from politics but he remained interested in - all things relating to Newfoundland. His work on his autobiographies and the encyclopedia also reflect the close relationship between his own - personal history and that of his nati - ve land. - - Smallwood's life from the time of his involvement in Newfoundland politics has been well documented but less is known about his early years. - This collection is able to fill in some of the gaps that have persisted through the publication of his autobiographies. Researchers using these - papers will be able to catch a glimpse of Smallwood's personal side especially his love of reading and writing, his journalistic adventures, and his - relationships with friends and family members. An avid collector, Smallwood emerges from these papers as a man of intense loves and hates, - passionate about his province above all else. - - COLL-285

168. Gosling, William Gilbert Gosling, William Gilbert It would appear from the small biography written and published by his wife after his death, that there was a much larger collection of the personal papers and manuscripts of William Gilbert Gosling than are evident here.

What has happened to them is not known. What is available here is a miscellany of Gosling's work, gathered from a variety of sources. Included are correspondence related to a magnetite deposit at Brigus, Newfoundland, a short typescript on the Anglo-American fishery case before the Hague Tribunal in 1911, a longer typescript on the history of American fishing rights in Newfoundland waters, and a bound copy in - draft form of An Act to Amend and Consolidate the Laws in Relation to the Municipal Affairs of the Town of St. John's, 1916, with various inserts and annotations in Gosling's hand.

170. Harrington, Michael Harrington, Michael Michael Harrington was a public figure for sixty years: he educated, entertained and - represented the general public on the radio, in print and in political office. Michael Harrington had a - varied career; he was an author, editor, radio personality, political figure, historian, poet, and university - lecturer as well as a "scholar and a gentleman." This collection reflects all these aspects of his life - through documents such as his poetry, radio broadcasts and scripts, National Convention materials, and - The Evening Telegram editorials. Harrington was an avid writer and researcher, and testaments to this - are his two long-standing historical series; the radio show "The Barrelman" on VONF (Voice of - Newfoundland) and his columns "Offbeat History" which appeared in The - Evening Telegram. - - Harrington wrote all his own material for these series. He first became - interested in writing when he won a poetry contest; he continued to write and publish poetry throughout - his life and even helped establish an Arts and Letters contest (through "The Barrelman"), the first of its - kind in Newfoundland. Harrington was a delegate for the 1946 National Convention. This notion of - representation and public office is probably what eventually lead him into the position of editor of The - Evening Telegram. - - The materials in this collection span a number of years; not only are there the - materials which Harrington himself created from 1922-1995; there are those which were sent to - Harrington. During Harrington's positions as "The Barrelman" and "Offbeat History" columnist, many - readers sent in photos and documents dating from the 1880s. The amount of materials sent to Harrington - from others suggests that he played an important role, both in the lives of individuals and in Newfoundland - culture as a whole through his promotion of Newfoundland history in his weekly chronicles. - - The collection contains photos, correspondence and research material relating to - Newfoundland history. Effort was made, where possible, to keep materials in their original order. It is also - notable that if Harrington published an article in a magazine, he often wrote the page number of the article - on the cover or first page. This followed through to some of his research materials and letters that he - received; in this case he often wrote "Offbeat" on them if he selected them for use. - - - - COLL-307
