Name of creator
The Labour and Business in New Brunswick Oral History Project was begun by Gary Chaison and Edward D. Maher of the University of New Brunswick in 1974. Its aim was to record the experiences of those people who helped bring about, or were close observers of, the substantial economic developments and changes in the structure of industrial relations systems in the Maritimes in the twentieth century. Further funding was acquired in 1975 and the final interview was recorded in 1978.
Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.
Scope and content
The collection consists of tape recordings and transcripts of oral interviews with 19 individuals prominent in labour relations in New Brunswick. They are: James Addison, Edward Charlton, N. Douglas Cochrane, Frank X. Crilley, Alfred J. Doucet, Donald C. Duffie, Hugh John Flemming, Edgar E. Fournier, Milton Gregg, Henry Harm, Donald Macdonald, Angus Macleod, Ben Medjuck, John A. Paterson, Horace Pettigrove, Joseph P. Vandenbroeck and H.D. Woods.
Topics include personal recollections of employment and early education as well as personal participation in union affairs and industrial relations from both sides. The activities of provincial and federal governments in the field of labour relations and development of major industrial systems in the province are discussed. The interviewees represent the view points of labour, industry, and government.
Immediate source of acquisition
The collection was donated to the Archives by Gary N. Chaison and Edward D. Maher of the University of New Brunswick in 1978.
