The correspondence also provides commentary on the - major political events of mid-twentieth century Newfoundland, including the Commission of Government, - the National Convention, the campaign for and eventual realization of Confederation with Canada and the - post-1950 economic development policies of the provincial government. It also provides a glimpse of St. - John's social history of a kind seldom reported in the local press. - - The collection should prove to be of interest to biographers, business historians, and social - historians and to those researchers looking for first-hand, personal accounts of Newfoundland, particularly - St. John's, during the middle years of the twentieth century. - - Coll-157
