TitleSmallwood Interview 06A
SummaryIn response to a question from Robert Pitt, Mr. Smallwood describes his experiences with political parties in New York, specifically the Progressive Party; and what they taught him about politics and working in politics. Smallwood got a job at the New York Call, a socialist daily, in 1920, having also worked on papers in Halifax and Boston. He discusses the socialist movement in the United States and in New York, where he became actively involved in socialist and progressive causes. He notes that being a member of the M.C.L.I. Debating Club was great training in public speaking. He recalls an encounter with Eleanor Roosevelt when campaigning in New York. Smallwood's political activities, notably surrounding national freedom movements, continued when he returned to Newfoundland.
