Scope and content

Series consists mainly of Norman Creighton's CBC radio talks, airing from the 1950s through 1980s, but also includes newspaper clippings and notes, a CBC brochure, and a chronological list of radio talks and their subjects. Radio talks are usually brief essays or editorials on subjects ranging from environmental issues; social issues; Maritime historical figures and events; Maritime communities and events; and lifestyle, among others. They aired on several CBC shows, including: A. M. Chronicle, Maritime Magazine, and Personally Speaking. There are approximately 700 talks, most of which are between five and seven typed pages. Creighton often re-used sections from radio talks or re-aired largely unchanged radio talks at later dates. Re-aired radio talks may also have been re-titled. Instances where material is known to have been recycled are noted. The series consists of two subseries based on type of material: 1. Radio talks 2. Title lists
