Scope and Content of FondsNewfoundland election campaigns in the period before Confederation with Canada were highly spirited affairs. Many things were said and printed, both in election hand-outs and in newspaper advertising and editorials, that would probably be considered libellous or slanderous by late twentieth century standards. The items contained in this small collection are relatively tame in comparison to some of the statements made during election campaigns, but they do contain some provocative statements. Such campaign material was an integral part of electioneering and provides insight into the way political campaigning was conducted in Newfoundland in the per-confederate era.
