281. Jubilee Guilds of Newfoundland - Newfoundland and Labrador Women's Institutes Jubilee Guilds of Newfoundland - Newfoundland and Labrador Women's Institutes The records of the Jubilee Guilds of Newfoundland and the Newfoundland and Labrador Women's - Institutes were deposited with the Archives and Special Collections following a meeting of the - board of the Newfoundland and Labrador Women's Institutes in June 1991. These papers cover the fifty - year period beginning in 1935 and reflect the work of both organizations. The Jubilee Guilds were - organized in 1935 along the lines of the Women's Institutes in England but it was not until 1951 that they - became affiliated with the Federated Women's Institutes of Canada (FWIC). In August 1968 the name of - the Jubilee Guilds was officially changed to Newfoundland and Labrador Women's Institutes (NLWI) and - the official program of the FWIC was adopted. - - The collection includes annual reports of the organizations, annual and monthly reports from the - Branches, presidents' reports, convenors' reports, convention coverage, financial records, - correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings, and various manuscript histories of the organization. - - The records were kept at the office of the Newfoundland and Labrador Women's Institutes in - the Arts and Culture Centre, St. John's. The Collection provides insight into the history of one of the - largest women's service and "self-help" groups in Newfoundland. - - COLL-166

284. Kearney, Joseph Kearney, Joseph Letters home from soldiers during wartime are one the few tangible connections between the soldier - in the - trenches and the family and friends left behind. The letters received are actually written by the soldier and - relate his experiences in his own words (except for the occasional deletion by the official military censor). - The letters often contain information about people met, friends wounded or killed in battle, food rations, - clothing needs, impending furloughs or reports on past ones, or other daily activities. The letters - sometimes contain the innermost feelings of the soldier: sorrow at the loss of a friend, the sadness of - missing family members, the desire to return home, the hope that the war will end soon. - - - The letters home are usually from soldiers on active duty, either in training or at the front. This collection - contains letters like these, but the largest number are from a soldier, Joseph Kearney, after he had been - captured by the enemy and had been assigned to a prison camp. Some of them are in the form of - postcards where the soldier had to select from a number of choices and cross out those not appropriate - to the message he wished to communicate, but most are one-page handwritten letters. They convey - Kearney's attempt to re-assure his parents that he is well and for them to keep faith that he will be home - soon. - - - The collection also contains other letters, mainly to his parents from the British War Office, the Red Cross, - the War Comforts Committee and from a number of family members and friends. There is a small amount of - associated materials: clippings about Kearney and other Newfoundland soldiers, a booklet on Victoria - Cross winners, a Newfoundland Coat of Arms. The collection should prove worthwhile to those interested - in the lives of Newfoundland soldiers, prisoners-of-war during World War II. - - - - COLL-217

285. Keen, William Keen, William Very little of William Keen's papers and business records are known to have survived, except for official correspondence to the British - government included in the records of the Council for Trade and Plantations, which was responsible for the administration of Newfoundland from - 1672 to 1782. There may also be correspondence and reports written by Keen in other British government records and in the private papers of - British officials. A small amount of original material remains in Newfoundland in particular the report Keen wrote of his imprisonment by the - French during the winter of 1708-1709. - - MF-059

287. Kelly, Matilda Kelly, Matilda There are a number of well-known images of the destruction and damage caused to the people and communities of the Burin Peninsula by the tidal wave which swept its coasts on November 18, 1929. The three images which form this collection are not as common as some others, but they were part of a number which were printed as postcards and made available for sale. These three were kept by Matilda Kelly, a young schoolteacher in Point au Gaul in 1929, where she witnessed the destruction of the tidal wave first-hand. The images captured here are representative of the types of damage caused by the tidal wave, providing a visual accounting often lost in textual and oral reports. MF-334

296. Laurence, Joseph Laurence, Joseph This album of photographs appears to be the work of Simeon H. Parsons (1844-1908), one of Newfoundland's earliest professional, self- - taught and award-winning photographers. The photographs are very much in the style for which Parsons was noted and cover a wide - geographic area, including the Burin Peninsula and coastal Labrador, in addition to more easily accessible areas such as St. John's and eastern - Newfoundland communities. Internal evidence dates some of the images to around 1884-1885, and given that the recipient of the album, - Joseph Laurence, died in October 1886, it would appear safe to assume that the album was compiled during those middle years of the 1880s. - Some of the images may date earlier, possibly from stock photographs Parsons may have had on hand. - - The album contains some rare images of St. John's streets and buildings that were later destroyed in the 1892 fire that ravaged most of the - downtown of the city. It also contains images of people at work in the fishery, particularly on the coast of Labrador; various communities on the - Burin Peninsula and on the east coast of Newfoundland; rural scenes, including rivers, lakes and waterfalls; icebergs; groups of people, - particularly several gatherings of Methodist clergy, some of whom Laurence was probably responsible for sending to Newfoundland. - - The album should prove beneficial to researchers interested in architectural and municipal development, the development of Methodism, the - history of photography, the work of Simeon Parsons, and a variety of other subjects pertaining to Newfoundland in the latter half of the - Nineteenth Century. - - - COLL-199

297. Lawton, Sidney Lawton, Sidney This is a small but interesting collection of a man who spent half of his working life ministering in Labrador - and rural Newfoundland. It consists primarily of his writings, ranging from sermons for Good Friday services - on the seven words from the Cross to an essay on the Italian invasion of Abyssinia (Ethiopia). Much of the - material is directly related to Newfoundland and Labrador, however, including a report of the rectory fire at - Cartwright (1928), the search for the ill-fated Koehler expedition (1932) and the need for improved medical - services in Fortune Bay during the mid-1930s. The collection provides a personal perspective. It is - valuable both as a record of a Church of England cleric working in relative isolation, and as a social - commentary upon the lives of the people he served. - COLL-147

298. Lewis, Olivia Lewis, Olivia Theater--Newfoundland and Labrador; Plays; Theater--Reviews; Theater programs; Lewis, Olivia, 1955- This collection represents the work of Olivia Lewis in the performing arts of Newfoundland.

299. Lewis, Rev. John Lewis, Rev. John Lewis, John, 1788-1866--Diaries; Methodist Church--Clergy--Newfoundland and Labrador; This fonds is comprised of the journals of Reverend John Lewis, a Methodist minister who spent six years (1814-1819) in Newfoundland as an itinerant missionary, stationed in a settlement but with responsibility for a number of other communities in the surrounding area. He spent approximately one year each in (Lower) Island Cove, Old Perlican, Hant's Harbour and Port de Grave. He was then assigned to a new charge based at Burin, the furthest west a missionary had been sent. The journals provide very detailed accounts of Lewis' experiences and of the people he meets in the course of his work, and should be of value to those interested in the communities where he served and the people who lived there; genealogists should be able to obtain much useful family history. His journals should also prove to be of interest to those researching early church history and missionary work in Newfoundland, and should be of particular interest to linguists, as Lewis seems to have created or developed his own system of spelling words, often phonetically.

300. Leyton, Elliott Leyton, Elliott This collection contains the literary and academic papers of Elliott Leyton. At the beginning of his - career, Leyton researched and wrote - about subjects that his academic discipline dictated were worthy of study. Over the years, he has eased - his way into areas that held more of a - personal interest for him. Through this collection, a researcher can trace Leyton's growth from his - academic beginnings in the anthropological - research of an Irish village, through his research of a Newfoundland village of Irish descendants and - subsequent publications on industrial - disease, on through to his interest in juvenile delinquency and then to mass murderers and children who - murder their families. During the 1970s - when he was writing about industrial disease and its affect on two Newfoundland communities and about - juvenile delinquency, theatre groups all - across Canada were writing and performing plays based on just such community-based issues. Leyton - collaborated with the Mummers Troupe - to dramatize his book "Dying Hard". (See Coll-126.) He later collaborated with Codco to - produce "We're No Match for No One," (see Coll-125) - based on The Myth of Delinquency. - - - - In most instances there are field notes, transcriptions of interviews, working notes, several drafts, - manuscripts and revisions. There are some - audio and video tapes. There is also a rich collection of correspondence with friends, colleagues, agents - and publishers, which gives insight into - the development of the books and the influences on the writer. This collection would be of interest to - students of sociology, anthropology, - criminology, drama and writing. COLL-008
