Morgan, M.O.
TitleMorgan, M.O.
Scope and Content of FondsM. O. Morgan spent most of his working life as a professor or administrator at Memorial University of Newfoundland. His official papers, documenting - his tenures as dean, vice-president and president of the university, are housed with Memorial's records and archives service. The materials contained in this collection - constitute his private and personal papers. Naturally there is some overlap, as Morgan kept personal copies of his reports to convocation, and other reports and - newspaper clippings related to the university. For the most part, however, this material documents his private life and interests. - The collection contains a small amount of family records and material documenting his personal interests. There are lecture notes and other records from his - university studies at Dalhousie and Oxford universities. There are copies of speeches, essays and articles, many dealing with aspects of Memorial University. There are - items dealing with his interest in the Newfoundland Confederation debate during 1948-1949, and the constitutional debate in Canada, 1989-1992; his membership on - the boards of the Joseph R. Smallwood Heritage Foundation and Newfoundland Hydro; his service on the royal commission into the sinking of the Ocean Ranger - offshore drilling rig, 1982-1985, and the Forget commission into unemployment insurance in Canada, 1985. Together they demonstrate the varied array of his interests - and expertise, and provide a more complete picture of Morgan the man, in contrast to the more common image of Morgan as university administrator. - -
