This fonds contains the personal and professional papers of Dr. Helen Sawyer Hogg documenting her contribution to professional astronomy, her high regard as a popular educator as well as her responsibilities as a parent, daughter, wife and friend. The records have been arranged into series either by type of record or to reflect a certain type of activity. Records documenting various aspects of her career are filed first, followed by papers reflecting her personal life. Included is both professional and personal correspondence; records relating to her activities on associations, boards and organizations; records such as draft manuscripts, correspondence and outlines and data relating to her publishing activities and research; papers relating to her education and her teaching responsibilities; as well as diaries and family papers series. Because Dr. Hogg's career spanned nearly seven decades during a time astronomy as a discipline was still developing both nationally and internationally, these records are not only useful to those researching Dr. Hogg's achievements but will be insightful to those researchers studying the development of astronomy as a science and profession. Moreover, Dr. Hogg was a woman in a field of science, which is still dominated by men. Those studying women's history may find Dr. Hogg's personal records a useful case study in one woman's success in a largely male-dominated profession. Contained within the Helen S. Hogg personal records are three sous-fonds: Frank S. Hogg [1922-1952], her first husband and also an astronomer at the David Dunlap Observatory; Prof. Ruth Northcott [1932-1969], close personal friend and professional colleague of Helen Hogg, also on staff at the D.D.O.; Dr. C.A. Chant [193- - 194-], director emeritus of the D.D.O and head of the Department of Astronomy at the University of Toronto from 1904-1935. These sous-fonds are individually described and have been filed after the Helen Hogg personal records.

This collection consists of handwritten essays and notes, and photographs by Mary Southcott, founder of the St. John's General Hospital School of Nursing. The essays and notes are about the pioneering days of nursing. There are essays about Florence Nightingale's work at Scutari and in England as well as descriptions of nursing in Newfoundland, both at the General Hospital in St. John's, and the tuberculosis camp. Some of her essays were published in British nursing journals. Internal evidence also indicates that Southcott was the Newfoundland correspondent for The Nursing Times for a number of years. Southcott was a keen amateur photographer. The photographs include pictures taken at the General Hospital, at the Waterford Hall convalescent hospital for soldiers during the first World War, and while on vacation in Newfoundland and Ontario. Many of these photographs are identified by comments written on the back by Southcott; however some are not. Although a small collection, these papers provide insight into the beliefs and attitudes of one of the most influential leaders in the history of nursing in Newfoundland.

The records of the Newfoundland Outport Nursing and Industrial Association were deposited in the Centre for Newfoundland Studies Archives 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.
