166. Duckworth, Sir John Duckworth, Sir John It was said that during the 19th century the sun never set on the British Empire; it is quite possible the same might be said of the papers of Sir John Thomas Duckworth in the 20th century. Scattered throughout repositories in Great Britain and North America, they record the life of a man who served that Empire for almost sixty years. - The Archives and Special Collections contain only a small portion of the Duckworth Papers, but included in this collection are documents which are very significant to the history of Newfoundland, particularly the correspondence from the Society of Merchants petitioning the Governor for removal of the Chief Justice - of the Supreme Court. - This collection has been put together over the last twenty years through individual purchases of single or multi-document packages offered by local and mainland - Canadian dealers. Most of the material relates directly to Newfoundland, but there are several items concerning Duckworth's naval duties in Europe and the Caribbean - which were purchased as part of larger units. There is also a series of correspondence between ships' captains in St. John's Harbour between December 11, 1812 and April 10, 1813 that appear to have no direct connection to Duckworth (his term as Governor of Newfoundland ended on December 2, 1812) but were listed as part of the Duckworth papers by a British dealer. - Listed below are some of the other repositories containing other Duckworth material. - - Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador (PANL): Duckworth's Newfoundland Station papers, 1807-1812; Original material: 132.5 cm.; microfilm: 9 reels from PAC. - - Public Archives of Canada (PAC): Duckworth Papers, 1699-1816; Original material: 332 pages; microfilm: 9 reels (includes material at PANL and at other repositories). - - Queen's University Archives, Kingston: Duckworth Papers, 1699-1816; Original material: 1 cm.; microfilm: 9 reels from PAC.

167. Duder, Edwin Duder, Edwin The Edwin F. Duder papers are a meagre remnant of what must have been, at one time, a much - larger body of material. It contains the manuscript material for one of his published books of poetry, The Whimsical Goat, and several unpublished manuscripts, both poetry and prose. The manuscript for his - other published volume of poetry, Time is a Gypsy, is not present. It seems likely that he returned many - collected letters to his correspondents, as he did with Florence Miller. Literary historians will find a clearer - picture of Duder emerges from the Florence Miller Papers, Coll-016. A number of published books by other writers, which are autographed and contain marginal notes by - Duder, have been kept with the collection. A number of other items from Duder's desk have been - removed from the collection; these are listed at the end of the finding aid. COLL-037

169. Duley, Margaret Duley, Margaret Margaret Duley wrote at least five novels, a non-fiction book, a number of short stories, poems, radio - broadcast scripts and volumes of correspondence. Yet very little of that body of material has survived. It - is believed that she destroyed her own manuscripts and other writings and much of her incoming - correspondence. That some of her work has survived is probably due more to oversight than intention. - What is included in this collection is mainly outgoing correspondence, written by Duley to her sister, aunt - and cousin. It is those people who are responsible for its survival. This collection consists of correspondence between Margaret Duley and her aunt, Alice Duley Jefferies, - and her cousin, Freda Jefferies, both living in England, covering approximately the 10-year period - between 1952 and 1962. There is also a second correspondence in the form of a continuing letter - journal which Duley wrote almost daily to her sister, Gladys Courtney, in North Carolina, during Duley's - European trip in 1953. Other items include two formal family pictures, one of the five Duley children and - one of the parents and children with extended family members, both taken around 1898. There is a small - amount of Margaret Duley's original writing: drafts of short stories; a novel fragment; a notebook, which - provide a brief glimpse into her creative abilities. COLL-248

170. 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
