Reuben Carpenter fonds



The Reuben Carpenter fonds
The fonds consists of 37 photocopied blueprints of vessel plans and designs drawn between 1964 and 1988 by Capt. Reuben Carpenter (1912-2001), a shipbuilder of Port Union, NL. The plans were drawn for the Carpenter's Shipyards Ltd. at Port Union and the Clarenville Shipyard in Clarenville. Included are line drawings, profile plans, and construction plans of fishing vessels. Thirteen drawings were discarded in 2011 when it was decided they were poor duplicates of several of the 37 drawings.

The original blueprints were borrowed from Carpenter by Bob Halliday, who loaned them to the MHA for copying in July 1995, with Carpenter's approval. A second set of blueprints was borrowed from Captain Carpenter by the archive for photocopying in September of the same year.
