Gosling, William Gilbert
TitleGosling, William Gilbert
Scope and Content of FondsIt would appear from the small biography written and published by his wife after his death, that there was a much larger collection of the personal papers and manuscripts of William Gilbert Gosling than are evident here. In that book, Armine Gosling refers to letters, commendations, manuscripts, newspaper clippings and other items one might expect to find in a collection of personal papers. What has happened to them is not known. What is available here is a miscellany of Gosling's work, gathered from a variety of sources. Included are correspondence related to a magnetite deposit at Brigus, Newfoundland, a short typescript on the Anglo-American fishery case before the Hague Tribunal in 1911, a longer typescript on the history of American fishing rights in Newfoundland waters, and a bound copy in - draft form of An Act to Amend and Consolidate the Laws in Relation to the Municipal Affairs of the Town of St. John's, 1916, with various inserts and annotations in Gosling's hand. They provide a brief but important glimpse into Gosling's life and work.
