Biographical note (a single note referring to all contributors to a product – see PR.8.17 for a biography which is linked to a single contributor)

HAROLD HORWOOD combined a literary ambition with early experience as a labour union organizer and a close collaborator of Newfoundland's first premier Joey Smallwood in the campaign for Confederation. He later became an author, and with his organizing experience was the natural choice as founding vice-chair of The Writers' Union of Canada and later chair, 1980-81.
