Scope and content

Fonds consists of 27 bound scrapbooks. The scrapbooks contain material ranging in date from 1965 to 1987. Material in the scrapbooks consists mainly of newspaper clippings mostly from Western Newfoundland newspapers, magazine clippings, and various types of printed material such as pamphlets.
The scrapbooks contained a variety of loose material in addition to the material glued in. In total there are 68 loose items of printed material, including the same types of material found in the scrapbooks, 4 ephemeral items, and 5 photographs.
Series 1: Scrapbooks
Series 2: Miscellaneous: All miscellaneous material was found as loose material inside the scrapbooks, and therefore is arranged first by category, and then by the scrapbook in which it was found.
