Smallwood, J.R.
TitleSmallwood, J.R.
Scope and Content of FondsThis collection consists of the government documents and personal papers that J.R. Smallwood - gathered while Premier of Newfoundland - from 1949 to 1972. In addition to textual material, the collection included many photographs, maps, - engineering and architectural drawings, posters, artifacts, audio-tapes, and over 5, 000 published volumes. - - In January 1984, with the assistance of a Research Tools Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities - Research Council of Canada, the Centre for Newfoundland - Studies undertook the task of sorting, arranging and describing this large collection. The initial step was to - remove all the published material and, where appropriate, these - items were added to other collections within the University Library. Each volume has been listed and - those now found in other collections are marked with the Smallwood - bookplate. Except where significant to the informational value of a file, all maps were transferred to the - Map Library. The audio-tapes, together with a portable wire recorder, - were transferred to the Folklore and Language Archive. - - The material which now comprises the Smallwood Collection and is described in this inventory is a rich - lode for the student of Newfoundland political history. Scholars of - many disciplines - economics, geography, sociology, anthropology and geology - will also find a valuable - resource in these papers; genealogists of the twenty-first century - will be tantalized by the District Files. - - - - - -
Extent of Fonds61 linear metres, and approx. 1940 photographs
