Lawton, Sidney
TitleLawton, Sidney
Scope and Content of FondsThis 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. -
