Mysterious East

  • CA UNB MG L 19
  • Fonds
  • 1969-1973

This fonds documents the production and distribution of The Mysterious East. It also reflects the political activities and left-leaning sympathies of the editors, and suggests the leading social and political concerns of the day.

Headquartered at Fredericton, NB, the magazine published editorials and articles primarily about Maritime issues from a local, but alternative perspective. These articles covered a wide range of topics: pollution, housing, censorship, birth control, drugs, police policies, and native problems. A popular monthly feature announced the recipient of the Rubber Duck Award. The Duck was usually given to public officials who, according to the editors, demonstrated "conspicuous knavery or incompetence or stupidity."

It contains incoming and outgoing correspondence, draft submissions, draft or working copies of articles, background research material, bank records, invoices (subscriptions), distribution and general office files, newspaper clippings, photographs and negatives. Artifacts include: 1 rubber stamp -- "Mysterious East" and 7 rubber ducks.
