TitleRoberts, Edward
Scope and Content of FondsIn 1986, Edward M. Roberts donated his political papers to Memorial University of Newfoundland for deposit in the Archives and Special Collections. - The papers document Roberts' involvement in political life, mainly in Newfoundland, from 1963 to 1985. They add significantly to the political collections already on - deposit at the Centre, particularly those of Joseph R. Smallwood (in whose Cabinet Roberts served from 1968 to 1972), John C. Crosbie and Dr. Frederick W. Rowe. - - Of particular significance are the political papers for the period 1964 to 1972 when Roberts was closely involved with the Smallwood Administration, first as - Smallwood's Parliamentary Assistant and later as Minister of Public Welfare and Minister of Health. The district files are quite valuable as they cover twenty successive - years of the development of one of the more remote areas of Newfoundland - the White Bay North (later Strait of Belle Isle) District - and provide a rich resource for - students of social and cultural history. The papers relating to Roberts' years as leader of the Liberal Party also complement Smallwood's, as Roberts succeeded - Smallwood as leader. -
