Name of creator
Eugene S. Woodward came to Victoria, B.C., from England in 1908. He became President of the Victoria Trades and Labour Council and elected to City Council in 1921. A self-educated economist, he served briefly as an advisor to the Social Credit government in Alberta in 1936 before turning to a career in journalism as an editorial writer and columnist.
E.S . Woodward's papers were bequeathed to his daughter Helen Woodward of Urbana, Illinois in May 1970 . She arranged the papers into rough chronological order (by decade), and added annotations on slips of yellow paper. She repaired some of the documents with "filmoplast" archival tape. She also provided an index ("overview") to the subjects covered by the files. Further annotations written by Helen Woodward on the file folders have been copied onto the file list. Helen Woodward donated the fonds to the University of British Columbia Special Collections Division on October 30, 1992 .
Scope and content
The fonds consists of correspondence, articles, speeches, radio scripts, briefs to government commissions, as well as clippings and printed material, and drafts of Woodward's book "Adventures in Free Enterprise: The Shape of Things to Come" (1965).
