Title: White Tie and Decorations. Sir John and Lady Hope Simpson in Newfoundland, 1934-1936.
Description: Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1997. 0802080855. "In February 1934, a financial emergency created by the Great Depression forced the suspension of self-government in Newfoundland. Britain guaranteed Newfoundland's debt and appointed a Commision of Government. Among the first members named to the new government was Sir John Hope Simpson, whose portfolio included responsibility for fishing, forestry, mining, and agriculture. This book is a selection from the many letters written from Newfoundland to family members in England by Sir John and Lady Hope Simpson (familiarly known as Quita). It recalls in vivid detail the terrible decade of the 1930's." Pp.xxiv/373, 16 pages of black & white photo plates. Pbk. VG.
