Item is a 56-page Hilroy scribbler with an illustration of a camp site and "CAMP SITE" written on the cover. The notebook contains Hope McPhee's recollections of meeting Roscoe Fillmore and stories about his life and career as a horticulturalist and political activist. Notes are written in pencil.
File comprises four letters sent from Fred Thompson to John Bell between July and October, 1976. The letters provide a recounting of Thompson's time in Halifax as a labourer and labour activist and reveal an ongoing discussion between Bell and Thompson regarding labour issues and labour history.
Item is a photocopy of a single manuscript called "My Memoirs." The memoirs focus largely on Fillmore's family history and the early period of his life prior to his involvement with the Maritime Communist Party.
Item is a publicity photograph of Tim Buck (1891-1973). Buck was the general secretary of the Communist Party of Canada from 1929-1962. The photograph was taken by Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002), a celebrated portrait photographer.
Fonds consists of fiction, non-fiction and poetry manuscripts, one notebook, leaflets and periodicals, newspaper clippings, and a hardcover copy of The Growing Question, a gardening book published by Fillmore in 1957. Materials relate to Fillmore's interests in horticulture and political activism.
File contains two drafts of typed manuscript for an article entitled "The Christian Glacier", written by Kenneth Leslie, presumably in 1958. The second draft, a six-page fragment, discusses the efforts of then-Alberta Premier [Ernest] Manning and Methodist Bishop Bromley Oxnam to "sell war to unsophisticated Christians" by comparing the Soviet Union to the Anti-Christ. File then discusses the evangelization of Madhya Pradesh in India through exploitation of "their poverty and suffering". File then discusses John Foster Dulles's anti-Communist (which Leslie sees as pro-Franco) beliefs, defending the "missionary" efforts of Communism by declaring that "when Spain lay bleeding under the blows of Mussolini and Hitler was it the atheistic Communist society that turned its face away and passed by on the other side, or was it the 'Christian' West?" Includes inked corrections and alterations in Leslie's hand. File also includes an earlier, heavily-annotated, 12-page typed draft with the title "The spirit of Jesus in the Soviet People".
