INTRODUCTION

This fonds consists of the personal and professional papers of Dillon Wallace. It includes manuscripts and typescripts of several of his books and magazine articles; annotated texts; journals and diaries written during his three expeditions to Labrador in 1903, 1905, and 1913; financial matters related largely to these expeditions; personal and professional correspondence; newspaper clippings that include book reviews and articles related to Wallace's life and interests. A large portion of these clippings pertain to exploration of the North Pole and the dispute between Dr. Frederick Cook and Admiral Robert Peary over which explorer reached the Pole first. Wallace was prominent in this debate because of his status as an Arctic explorer and as an appointed leader of a rescue expedition that had been organized when it was believed that Dr. Cook's party had become lost in the Arctic in 1908 (Dr. Cook returned just before the rescue operation was to commence); lantern slide images from all three Labrador expeditions and Wallace's expedition(s) to western Mexico in 1907-08, as well as, other photographic images; and a small number of miscellaneous items. This collection would be of interest to researchers of the history of Labrador exploration and to those interested in Labrador as represented in both fiction and non-fiction publications. Furthermore, this collection would be of value to students of Dillon Wallace's writings and exploration and adventure writing as a genre in the early decades of the twentieth century.

PROVENANCE

In an attempt to determine custodial history and provenance, Bert Riggs, archivist at the Centre for Newfoundland Studies, contacted Ann Wallace McKendry, Wallace's daughter, asking for information she or her brother, also named Dillon, might be able to provide on the history of the papers. The response is reprinted in full below because it not only provides an excellent history of the creation and collection of the papers, but also acts as a valuable supplement to the biography included in this finding aid.

My brother, Dillon, and I have been asked to provide some background relating to our father's manuscripts and other papers: where and when he wrote, and how the papers happened to have been saved until the 1990's.

During our childhood we lived at 101 Union Street in Beacon, New York, in the Hudson River Valley. Our father had his den in an upstairs room of the big old house.

The den was a special place to us, off limits to my brother and me when my father was working, but a place we enjoyed when invited to be there.

The room had a wood stove where the fireplace had been, and which provided a cozy atmosphere as well as warmth on cold wintry days. There were two typewriters, a Royal and a Remmington opposite one another, each on a stand over by a window. The Remmington had been used by a young woman he had sometimes hired to help with typing his manuscripts, but during the years I remember, he did most of the typing himself. He strongly favoured the Royal, and there he would type away rapidly, using his two forefingers, hunt and peck.

In the center of the den was a big flat-topped desk, usually covered with an assortment of papers and books. Behind the desk was his big wooden armchair. Here he sat with a yellow legal pad and fountain pen to write the first draft of a manuscript.

Along one wall was a couch. When he needed a respite from his work he would stretch out here, and to rest he would often read a magazine or book, or study Greek. Any remaining wall space contained bookcases, and standing beside a window in the corner was a wood and wrought iron stand that held the two volumes of a huge unabridged dictionary.

Often our mother, my brother and I joined my father in his den to hear him read to us the newest chapter of a book he was writing, or to read aloud some interesting letters he had received. He had a large correspondence, and always answered letters from readers of his books and magazine articles.

In the early thirties, as I approached my teen years and my father his seventies, came the Great Depression. When people can hardly buy food, they do not buy books. Our family, never very far away from the bill collectors (though as children my brother and I were blissfully unaware of our family's always precarious financial situation) had to resort to new ways of earning a living. We have memories of a wonderful summer in 1933 on the St. Maurice River in Quebec when I was 13 and Dillon was 9. Our father was attempting to establish a boy's camp there with a French-Canadian partner. Although that summer is a golden memory for us, it must have been most difficult for our parents as it became one more financial disaster.

In 1934 our father became the head of the Dutchess County WPA Writer's Project, commuting some 18 miles by bus to Poughkeepsie, the county seat. Mother headed the local WPA Nursery School -- that's what preschools were called then -- until it was determined that only one member of a family could work for the Works Progress Administration. My mother turned our cellar into a jam and jelly factory, and her products supplied a local private mental institution. My brother and I sold eggs from our chickens, and helped in the jam kitchen.

In spite of all this, our parents maintained a positive, optimistic outlook, and I remember these years more as a great adventure than as a time of privation.

It was 1936 when our father's Camper's Handbook was finally published, several years after it had been originally scheduled. This proved to be his last book. Because of increasing medical problems and financial pressures, the camp counsellor's handbook he was planning never got off the ground.

By the summer of 1939 our father's health had severely deteriorated. So had our family's ailing finances. We lost our house for taxes. Our mother, her husband now bedridden, was faced with finding an apartment to move into. She then had to cull the contents of 11 rooms plus a full attic and cellar and garage/woodshed into a two-bedroom upstairs flat. The house was chock full of furnishings (including two pianos) and books, much of which had been left to our parents by a series of aged relatives. Today when I visit an antique shop I see all sorts of items that are dead ringers for the contents of our house and bearing fancy price tags, but sold for "peanuts" at the giant auction our mother endured.

Somehow the move was made. Just a few short weeks later our father died, on September 28, 1939. Many treasured family heirlooms were gone. But stored away in the bit of space we were allowed in the attic, were boxes and files of our father's manuscripts, correspondence, photographic slides, and artifacts brought back from Labrador, all carefully labelled in Mother's handwriting.

Along came World War II. Dillon was drafted into the army. While he was away in army camps, then on the front in Italy and North Africa, the house we were living in was sold, and another apartment hunt ensued. This time we moved to an even smaller four-room apartment, the ground floor in an old house that had been made into three apartments. Still, all those boxes of artifacts and files of manuscripts and papers came with us. There were boxes everywhere, and hardly space to move around. Finally the war ended, Dillon came home, and I left Beacon to seek my fortune in New York City. In the mid-1950's Dillon and Mother bought a house on the north end of town. It was not long until Mother developed health problems, and she died in 1959.

A few years later Dillon married. Years passed, and the Labrador artifacts still sat there in their boxes. In 1983, concerned for their safety and preservation where they might be appreciated, he and Loretta gathered them up, drove to Newfoundland, took a boat to Labrador and left them with the historical society museum in Happy Valley [mostly lantern slides]. Here they received a most enthusiastic welcome, and are currently nicely displayed in the Heritage Museum [on this trip Dillon met George Waye, a resident of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, with whom he developed a friendship. He later sent him (c. 1988) approximately 400 photographs, mostly copies, of his father's expeditions, as well as, a tobacco pouch and a barometer].

But none of us knew what to do with all those manuscripts and papers. When authors Jim Davidson and John Rugge were researching the Hubbard expedition of 1903 for their book, Great Heart, they were able to locate Dillon -- happily he had the same name as his father and still lived in Beacon. Dillon poked around in these boxes and found his father's Labrador diaries. These and other papers they found so useful convinced us we needed to sort out all our parents' files and find a proper home for at least the Labrador papers.

After the publication of Great Heart, and Loretta's untimely death in 1988, Dillon and I spent some time in each of two summer visits I made to Beacon sorting papers -- trying to decide what to save and what to cull out. There had been a suggestion that The Explorers Club in New York City might take Labrador papers, but the trunk that now contained the papers still sat in Dillon's house when he was contacted by the person who put him in touch with you [Bert Riggs].

You can be sure we are both most relieved that the manuscripts, diaries, and all are in good hands where they can be available for research and properly preserved.

James West Davidson, co-author of Great Heart, suggested to Dillon Wallace III that he contact Aquila Books in Calgary when Wallace exhibited concern about finding a suitable home for his father's collection of papers. When the existence of these papers were made known to the Centre for Newfoundland Studies, Cameron Treleaven, owner of Aquila Books was contacted and the collection was acquired. It arrived at the Centre in two shipments: September 5, 1991 and January 20, 1992. These papers were created and collected by Dillon Wallace and his family between 1903, the date of his first Labrador expedition, and his death in 1939. Some material was evidently added by Wallace's family after his death including obituaries, some newspaper clippings and correspondence regarding the reprinting of Lure Of The Labrador Wild in the 1950's. A final acquisition of Wallace papers including correspondence, manuscripts, and a published copy of Ungava Bob containing authorial annotations was acquired in October 1995 from John W. Doull, a bookseller in Halifax. Both acquisitions have been integrated into this collection.

BIOGRAPHY

Dillon Wallace was born June 24, 1863 in Craigsville, New York, to Dillon Wallace and Rachel Ann Ferguson. He was one of five children: three sisters, Annie (b. 1862), Ruth (1869-1879), Jessie (b. 1871), and a brother who died in infancy. At the age of four his family moved to Ridgebury, Orange County where he attended the district school. Forced to leave school at the age of seventeen, because of his father's failing health and finances, Wallace found work as a miller in Florida, New York. In his spare time he studied telegraphy and in 1883 he left the mill and became a railway telegrapher. Wallace continued his self-education while working as a telegrapher. He studied such subjects as history, English literature, Greek and Latin, geometry and trigonometry, as well as, stenography and bookkeeping. In 1888 he moved to New York City and found employment as a secretary with the American Leather Company. In 1892 he entered New York Law School, graduating with a Bachelor of Laws degree in 1896. Shortly after being admitted to the New York bar in 1897, Wallace secured a clerkship in the offices of Colonel Asa Bird Gardiner (later district attorney in New York County), General James M. Varnum, and Bainsbridge Colby (later President Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State). With his clerkship complete Wallace entered upon a private practice as a junior partner with the firm McLaughlin & Stern. He married Jennie E. Currie in April 1897; she died three years later from "consumption."

In 1900, shortly after his wife's death, Wallace met Leonidas Hubbard, Jr. (1872-1903) and they quickly became fast friends. Hubbard was the assistant-editor for Outing, an American nature magazine. Fuelled by the recent exploits of Arctic and Antarctic explorers and living in the Roosevelt era in which outdoor adventure was exulted as the ultimate in manly American character building, Hubbard was inspired to explore the relatively unknown Labrador interior, a sub-artic region of North America that could provide for adventure not far from home. Securing funding from Casper Whitney, editor-and chief of Outing, Hubbard convinced Wallace, then forty years old, to accompnay him on a trip that would have them travel from Northwest River to Lake Michikamau and then northwards to the George River and Indian House Lake where the party could witness the annual Naskapi caribou hunt in late September. This was indeed a challenging route to pursue through the wilds of Labrador, and one that would prove fatal as the expedition members would realize all to late. Hubbard rounded out his entourage with the hiring of George Elson, a Scots-Cree native from James Bay working for the Hudson's Bay Company, an experienced woodsman who would act as a guide.

The expedition left New York on June 20, 1903 and arrived in Northwest River in mid-July, late in the Labrador summer season. Two days after leaving Northwest River by canoe, the party mistook the Susan River for the Naskaupi River (the best route to Lake Michikamau) as a result of wilderness inexperience and a misleading map. The Susan led them into a series of unnavigable waterways and arduous portages slowing their journey considerably. Coupled with this error was their reliance on catching wild game which proved to be scarce. With their food supply dwindling and the Labrador winter fast approching, Hubbard, an eternal optitmist and romantic, decided to continue pushing forward in search of the fabled Michikamau. However, by mid-September, Hubbard and his party, in a weakened and bedraggled state, were forced to turn back along their route to Northwest River. By mid-October Hubbard could go no further. He was too exhausted. Wallace and Elson made him as comfortable as possible and left him at a camp while Wallace went in search of a near-by cache of flour they had abandoned on the way into the interior and Elson in search of local trappers they hoped would be in the vicinity. Elson made it to a cabin and with four native trappers returned along his route finding Wallace collapsed and delirious in the snow and Hubbard dead of exhaustion and starvation. After a lengthy recuperating period at Northwest River, Wallace returned to New York on May 20, 1904 with Hubbard's body.

Wallace decided to record this harrowing tale in a book and he negotiated with Mina Hubbard, Leonidas' widow, for the rights to use Hubbard's field notes, maps and photographs. The resulting book, Lure Of The Labrador Wild, released in February 1905, became an instant best-seller in the United States and Canada. However, Mina Hubbard believed that it painted an unfair picture of her late husband's responsibility in the failure of the expedition and a rift developed between her and Wallace. After learning of Wallace's plans to return to Labrador to complete the journey through the interior, Mina Hubbard resolved that she too would venture into the Labrador wilderness in an attempt to complete her husband's expedition as he had originally envisioned it and hopefully prevent Wallace from attaining the fame she believed should have belonged to Leonidas. A race between Wallace and Hubbard was soon hyped in the press. Mina Hubbard was able to secure the services of George Elson and three other native guides. According to some accounts, Elson had also felt slighted by Wallace and his version of the events in Lure of the Labrador Wild and had refused to be a part of his new expedition. In Elson's place, Wallace employed Peter Stevens, an Ojibwa from Minnesota, who would act as guide. The other members of Wallace's party were George M. Richards, a geology student from Columbia University, Clifford H. Easton, a student from Biltmore School of Forestry, and Leigh Stanton, a veteran of the Boer War and general layabout. Wallace, now a member of the Outing staff, received financial backing from Casper Whitney in return for the rights to another Labrador story. The rival expeditions both reached Northwest River near the end of June and departed from this post within only a few days of each other. Mina Hubbard decided to take the more conservative route, canoeing through the Naskaupi River Valley while Wallace opted for leaving the Valley and searching for an old Indian portage route to Seal Lake. Furthermore, he decided to take along a food supply that required supplementation by wild game while Hubbard's party carried enough food to forego hunting. As a result, Wallace's journey was considerably rougher and slower than Hubbard's course of exploration. After reaching Lake Michikamau on September 3, Wallace decided to divide his party, giving rations to Stevens, Richards, and Stanton to return to Northwest River while he and Easton pressed on to the Hudson's Bay Company post at George River. They finally reached their destination on October 16, more than six weeks after the Hubbard party's arrival. Wallace than decided to continue on to Fort Chimo, in Ungava Bay, by means of a small boat manned with native guides, perhaps a foolhardy decision considering his already weakened state and low provisions. Shortly after leaving Fort George, their craft was impeded by northern pack ice and Wallace, Easton, and their two guides were forced to revert to an overland hike. However, the winter weather posed a serious threat to their survival and a decision to abandon their provisions in order to quicken their pace was made. Exhausted and starving, the guides left Wallace and Easton in a log hut while they pushed on towards Whale River for help. They returned six days later with provisions and dog sleds. After a short respite in Whale River, the party proceeded to Fort Chimo, reaching this post on November 28. In January, they embarked on their return by dog-sled, travelling south along the Labrador coast and reaching Northwest River on February 26, 1906. Continuing along the Labrador coast, Wallace ventured into Quebec and obtained passage home to New York. He recounted this second journey in The Long Labrador Trail, released in 1907.

Encouraged by his new found literary success and relishing an adventurous lifestyle, Wallace turned to writing and exploring. In 1907 he published his first tale of fiction, Ungava Bob. Under the auspices of Outing, he also made two journeys into western Mexico and the Sierra Madre Mountains between 1907-08, accounts of which were serialized in Outing and later printed in book form as Beyond The Mexican Sierras (1910). In 1910 he travelled extensively through the American Southwest and West observing the big game conditions and native peoples he encountered. These travels were also recorded in Outing and later published as Saddle And Camp In The Rockies (1911). This formula of periodical serialization to eventual book publication became the norm in Wallace's writing career. The majority of his twenty-eight books were written for a juvenile audience. Many first appeared in such youth magazines as Junior Home Magazine, American Boy, The Haversack, Forward, The Classmate, and Onward, and were later expanded and published in book form. Influenced deeply by his experiences in Labrador, many of the stories were set in this wilderness region, combining outdoor adventure with character building in young boys.

Wallace's reputation as an explorer lead to his membership in many fraternal organizations and clubs including the Arctic and Explorers Clubs. In 1908, he was chosen by the membership of these two organizations to head a rescue party to the North Pole in search of Dr. Frederick Cook, then presumed lost. However, Cook returned before the launch of the expedition. Wallace's fame also produced many requests to lecture before the members of various clubs, organizations, and universities about his exploration experiences.

In 1911, Wallace moved to Beacon, New York and resumed his law practice. During this period he became interested in the Boy Scout movement which was then in its early infancy in the United States. This interest lead him to form the first Scout Troop in Dutchess County, New York. Attempts to establish his own boys' camps in the United States and Canada, however, meet with failure. He held memberships in the Dutchess County Scout Council (as well as the honorary presidency), the National Scout Council, and the National Camp Committee. Several of his books were printed as Boy Scout Editions. In this same vein of youth development, Wallace acted as the director of the Culver School of Woodcraft associated with the Culver Military Academy in Indiana, a post he held from 1916 to 1925.

Wallace's 1905 expedition did not mark the end of his Labrador excursions. He made a final foray into the Labrador interior in 1913 with his friend and fellow adventurer, Judge William J. Malone of Bristol, Connecticut. The purpose of this third journey was two-fold: map the Beaver River and place a memorial tablet at the site of Leonidas Hubbard's last campsite. Wallace and Malone began this venture in June 1913 accompanied by three native Labradorians including Gilbert Blake, one of Wallace's four rescuers in 1903 and a member of the Mina Hubbard expedition in 1905. Unfortunately, the memorial tablet was lost when the canoe which was carrying it capsized in the interior. However, the party continued on to Hubbard's last campsite and chiselled an inscription on a rock, marking the site of Hubbard's demise. Wallace was also successful in mapping the Beaver River and several smaller bodies of water.

After returning from Labrador in 1913, Wallace concentrated largely on his writing and his involvement with youth. In 1917 he married Leila Greenwood Hinman of Cleveland, Ohio. He and Leila had two children: Leila Ann (b. 1919) and Dillon III (b. 1924). He retired from his law practice in March 1918.

Wallace edited and made contributions to the Camping and Living Departments of Hunting and Fishing Magazine and also made many contributions to the National Sportsman. The Wallace family struggled through the Great Depression. Making a living with his pen was not easy for Wallace. Furthermore, it was during this period that his attempts to establish his own summer camps failed. In 1934, Wallace became head of the Works Progress Administration's Federal Writers' Project guidebook series for the Dutchess County area. His last published book, The Camper's Handbook, appeared in 1936. On September 28, 1939, at the age of seventy-six, Dillon Wallace died at Beacon, New York and was buried in a cemetery in near-by Fishkill.

ARRANGEMENT & DESCRIPTION

The materials that comprise the Dillon Wallace Fonds were not arranged in any particular order when they arrived at the Centre for Newfoundland Studies. Several manuscripts were not identified, financial papers and correspondence were not ordered or grouped, many of the newspapers were not clipped for relevant material, and lantern slides and photographs were not labelled or described. Disarray prevailed, requiring the arranger to impose an artificial order on the material. The following series formed the most natural divisions after careful study of the contents of this fonds.

Series 1 consists of a selection of Wallace's monograph manuscripts and typescripts. It also includes published books with authorial annotations.

Series 2 consists of a selection of Wallace's periodical manuscripts and typescripts. This includes articles written for various magazines and what appear to be possible short stories.

Series 3 consists of field journals and diaries kept by Wallace on his three Labrador expeditions in 1903, 1905, and 1913. There is also a diary kept by Leigh Stanton during the 1905 expedition.

Series 4 consists of financial matters related largely to the provisions and expenses incurred on the 1903, 1905 and 1913 Labrador expeditions.

Series 5 consists of both personal and professional correspondence. The personal correspondence is organized largely by the name of Wallace's correspondent. In a few cases, where this order was not appropriate, a subject title has been assigned to the contents of a file. The professional correspondence, which pertains mostly to the publication of Wallace's books, is organized largely by book title. In a few cases, where this order was not appropriate, the correspondence was organized by the name of Wallace's correspondent. This series also contains a small amount of correspondence addressed to or written by members of Wallace's family.

Series 6 consists of newspaper clippings. These clippings have been organized based on content. Sub-series 6.01 contains reviews and other clippings related to Wallace's publications. The files in this sub-series are labelled by publication title. Sub-series 6.02 is composed of clippings that deal with Wallace's life and general interests. These files are labelled by subject. As the original newspaper was brittle and crumbling, all clippings were photocopied.

Series 7 consists of items dealing with the Hubbard memorial placed on a rock in the Labrador wilderness at the site of his death. These items include printer's plates, plate-paper, illustrations and photographs.

Series 8 consists of lantern slides and other photographic images. The majority of the slides were taken during Wallace's 1903, 1905, and 1913 Labrador expeditions. There is a small collection of slides taken on his 1907-08 Outing expedition(s) into western Mexico. Ideally, the Labrador slides should be divided into sub-series based on the date of the expedition in which they were taken. However, identifying and dating the slides often proved difficult and, therefore, this arrangement could not be made. Most of the descriptions that accompany the slide images were based on a list prepared by Brian Rusted (see administration files). Captions in Great Heart, Lure of the Labrador Wild, The Long Labrador Trail, and "Dillon Wallace of Labrador" (The Beaver, Summer 1975, pp. 50-57) also proved useful in describing these images. Besides the slides, there are a small number of black and white photographs, most of which pertain to the Labrador expeditions.

Series 9 consists of a small number of miscellaneous items that did not fit into the divisions above including annotated texts by other authors and ephemera.
