241. Gwyn, Sandra Gwyn, Sandra The Sandra Gwyn fonds consists of a fairly comprehensive record of the professional and personal life of - a well-respected and award-winning Canadian journalist and social historian.

244. 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

254. Higgins, John Gilbert Higgins, John Gilbert The papers of John Gilbert Higgins, QC, MA were given to Memorial University Library by his son Gilbert Edward Higgins over a period of years starting in 1963. Monographs and periodicals were added to the book collections of the Library and the Centre for Newfoundland Studies, but for twenty years the boxes and filing cabinets of archival material remained unsorted. Some found their way into the Maritime History Archive but have since been reunited with those which were stored in the Library. In 1983 we began the process of organizing the collection which was of increasing interest to students of the Confederation period, but it was not possible to pursue this work continuously until 1986. The arrangement has now reached a point where it is possible to describe it in a finding aid and to make the collection accessible for research. There remains much that might profitably be done to refine this arrangement and to list material more fully for future access and security, especially in Series 2 which concerns the Board of Arbitration under Defence (Requisitioning of Land) Regulations of the Emergency Powers (Defence) Act. This inventory is a preliminary effort. - - John Gilbert Higgins was born a collector and at an early age demonstrated due respect for the historical record. From scrapbooks began at the age of four to lists of artifacts and paintings in his Senatorial office very little of the paper record of his life had been discarded; and his life consisted of many layers, some of which are more fully documented than others. As a mirror of Newfoundland society there is 60 years of personal correspondence in Series 5 and the records of many of the organizations with which he was affiliated in Series 4. Historians will find significant material in Series 3.1 (the Responsible Government League) and Series 2 (Board of Arbitration records). Series 1 and 6 contain an important sample of the work of the legal profession in this period. - - Photographs and memorabilia, plans, posters and a large selection of legal documents from the practice of Sir James Winter in the nineteenth century make this a collection visually interesting for exhibitors, and genealogists will find a wealth of family history in Series 2. Manuscripts, drafts and working notes for his own writing in prose and poetry on a wide variety of subjects is also in Series 5. In short, almost all aspects of Newfoundland life in the first 60 years of the 20th Century may be glimpsed or illuminated in the papers of John Gilbert Higgins. - COLL-087

Also contained in the fonds are mining claims and mining indentures and one piece of correspondence from Morison and Hunt, Barristers, Solicitors and Notaries, to George Hodder regarding the sale of antimony from Hodder's mine. - As these documents are photocopies, many are barely legible.

258. Hodgins, Charles Hodgins, Charles This is a small collection of notebooks and diaries of a person who is a unique individual in many ways: a - clergyman attached to a regiment of soldiers during World War II. He is Charles Hodgins. His notebooks - contain field notes, ideas for sermons and some of the sermons themselves, orders of services, poems, or - bits and pieces of poetry, and other assorted items.
