Biographical history

Reverend Arthur E. Millward received a B.A. from the University of Toronto, an A.M. from Harvard, an A.L.A. (U.K.), an L.Th. from St. John's College, and a Ph.D. from Toronto. He arrived in Winnipeg in 1952 to work in the University of Manitoba Libraries. From 1957 to 1960, he was part-time librarian at St. John's College. In 1971, he returned to the University Libraries where he remained until his retirement in 1991.

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by A.E. Millward in two accruals in 1994 and 1996.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of two folders of personal correspondence addressed to Millward from prominent Canadian writers Robert Finch and James Reaney. Folder 1 is made up of correspondence from poet and novelist Robert Finch to A.E. Millward, dated between December 1990 and March 1994. Topics include the work performed by a Massey College colleague, Robert Roseberry, in Malawi and Brunei-Darussalam. Folder 2 consists of correspondence from poet/novelist James Reaney to Millward, primarily between 1950 and 1953, but also includes one letter from both 1989 and 1990.
