Newfoundland; Economic, Diplomatic, and Strategic Studies

By R. A. MacKay | Go to book overview

FOREWORD
NEWFOUNDLAND

Much has been written about this unique island, standing as it does in one of the world's greatest highways. Much has been said about its politics, its fish, its timber and its airports. Much more can be said and will be said, but in these studies edited by Professor R. A. MacKay we endeavour to present a somewhat different picture of past, present and future.

I have had the good fortune to know the people of Newfoundland well. I first went there some twenty-five years ago, and I have often been back since. They are an individual people who have known difficult days, but have borne them with fortitude and hardihood. They have been proud of their island nationhood, and their key position in communications. They are about to put on new clothes, which may be the same colour as the old clothes but they will be different. The old Newfoundland has gone forever, and after the War we shall see something different, not in purpose or ideal but in outlook and status.

The preparation of these studies has enabled me to learn more about the past and present of the Island, and I know my colleagues on the Supervisory Committee have appreciated with me this opportunity, and will wish to join with the Council of Chatham House in thanking the Carnegie Corporation for their financial generosity, and in thanking those writers who have assisted Professor MacKay to make this real contribution to the study of a people whose place in history is forever assured.
