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.

Robert Leonard Hazen

  • CA UNB MG H 14
  • Fonds
  • 1812-1873

This fonds documents the legal career of Robert L. Hazen as well as his personal life. Through legal and court records and household accounts, it also reflects everyday life in 19th century New Brunswick.

The fonds contains personal and business correspondence, personal and business accounts, cancelled cheques, receipts for servants' wages, and tax assessments. Legal records include court dockets, warrants, subpoenas, trial documents, judgments, contracts, and opinions.

Although most of the legal cases were civil rather than criminal and were tried in the Supreme Court, a few cases were heard in the Court of Chancery in England and the New Brunswick Chancery Court. Almost half the legal cases relate to Hazen's roles as solicitor of the Commercial Bank and recorder for the city of Saint John.

The documents in this fonds fall into four groups: Dockets; court cases (includes documents relating to the murder case, R. v. Leonard et al, 1839-40); legal papers and accounts (includes cases involving railways, debtors, delinquent tenants, and insurance claims); and personal accounts.
