Newfoundland Outport Nurses and Industrial Association (NONIA)
TitleNewfoundland Outport Nurses and Industrial Association (NONIA)
Scope and Content of FondsThe records of the Newfoundland Outport Nursing and Industrial Association were deposited in the Archives and Special Collections on January 25, 1991. These records were generated from - 1925 to 1990 and reflect the social and business history of the Association. The records, however, are - incomplete. The annual reports cover the years 1925 to 1978 but the remainder of the reports and - minutes of meetings cover only the years from the 1950s to the present. - - - The collection includes annual reports, Presidents' reports, financial reports, correspondence, - advertising and promotional brochures, records of the NONIA store, records of the Corner Brook branch - operations, manuscript histories, and photographs. A very interesting document is the Visitors Guest Book - which was kept in the NONIA store from 1933 to 1951 and contains signatures of thousands of - customers during that period including the wife of British Prime Minister Ramsey MacDonald. - - - The records were kept intermittently at the NONIA store at 286 Water Street, St. John's, for a - number of years and at the residences of some of the past presidents of NONIA. The records reveal a - fascinating insight into nursing history, life in the outports, and a successful business venture of - Newfoundland cottage industry.
