Interview Request: Faery Tradition in Harbour Grace

“Faery circle,” Harbour Grace (Photo: Vicky Taylor-Hood)

We’ve had a request from a MUNL Folklore graduate student regarding the tradition of faeries in Harbour Grace.

As part of their thesis research, Magdalyn Knopp is looking to speak with any residents familiar with the tradition. Stories, experiences, beliefs, opinions – these sorts of things.

If you’re interested in participating, or know someone who might be, the research will comprise a short Zoom or phone interview (less than an hour).

Feel free to email Magdalyn at or call (709) 325-6121 for more information.

Photo Request: An Aviation Photo of Claude Stevenson!

May be an image of 1 person and standing
Pictured: Digital photograph of Claude Stevenson with his plane, date unknown

We need your help!

We’re looking for a physical photograph of local aviator Claude Stevenson for our Aviation Room revamp. An elevation in the room is set to feature the story of Harbour Grace’s local aviators, including Claude and Alexander and Lamont Parsons. Though we have high-quality pictures to scan for Alexander and Lamont, we have nothing for Claude!

Ideally, this photograph would feature Claude as an aviator – in his hangar, at the airstrip, flying his plane, etc. Digital photographs would work, too, though they need to be 1200dpi for us to produce them on the storyboard elevation. (For example, the picture below won’t work due to its poor quality.)

Photo credits will be given and we do not need any photographs permanently – they’ll be simply scanned and returned to the loanee. This process just takes a couple minutes!

If you have a photograph, or know where to get one, contact Matthew at
