Biographical history

Lydia Campbell (1818-1904) was born in Mulligan, Groswater Bay, Labrador. At the age of 75, she wrote accounts of her life in Labrador through the persuasion of Rev. Arthur C. Waghorne. This work was published in the EVENING TELEGRAM in 1894. Lydia Campbell's writings represent the first published writings of a native Labrador resident. Her diary, covering the years 1893-1894, was published by THEM DAYS in 1980 and in 2000 by Killick Press.
