21. Barrelman Radio Program Barrelman Radio Program Barrelman (Radio program); O'Leary Newfoundland (Radio Program); Radio broadcasting--Newfoundland and Labrador; Popular culture--Newfoundland and Labrador; Radio scripts; Correspondence This collection contains the papers of The Barrelman radio program, the scripts of which were generated by Joseph R. Smallwood and Michael F. Harrington, the two announcers who served as the Barrelman in St. John's. The St. John's scripts were recycled for the Corner Brook series, which was entitled O'Leary Newfoundland Program and hosted by Stan O'Leary, brother of the program's sponsor, F.M. O'Leary. These vary somewhat from the St. John's scripts and are also included in the collection. This collection will be of interest to historians and biographers researching Smallwood's and Harrington's early careers; those studying the lives of other prominent Newfoundlanders, especially those who made a name for themselves outside Newfoundland; folklorists, who will find a wealth of material on a wide range of folkloristic genres; those interested in early radio programming in Newfoundland, as well as diversions of the time; students of vernacular literature; and anyone seeking a sampling of Newfoundland's history, culture and social life.

24. Dunfield, Caroline Withers Dunfield, Caroline Withers This is a gift, a very special gift given to Caroline Withers on the occasion of her marriage to Reverend Henry Dunfield on October 10, 1878. It consists - of 49 watercolour paintings depicting scenes from St. John's and environs, painted by William Frederick Rennie, whose daughter, Emma, was married to Caroline's - brother, John. The paintings are affixed in a large scrapbook album and, considering their age, are in very good condition. - This collection of paintings will be of interest to those researching art history and artistic styles practised in St. John's in the 1870s. They shed much light on - Rennie as a painter, as little of his work has survived. The album should also be of assistance to those researching built heritage in St. John's during this period, as it - shows the location of many buildings which no longer exist, as well as some which do. Of particular interest is the painting of "The Billies", Dr. William Carson's house - at Rostellan, a building which had undergone much external alteration following its construction in the 1820s, until it was torn down in 199?. There are also - paintings of scenes outside St. John's, including Manuels and Topsail. - While there is no indication on any of the paintings that they were painted by William Frederick Rennie, a comparison between these and known examples of his work - have resulted in a strong case for attributing them to him. The subject matter, the style, the medium and the time period all point to Rennie as the artist. COLL-031
