In this thesis, the viewpoint of the southwestern Ontario press via three representative newspapers will be looked at from December 11, 1945 (the day the United Kingdom's Prime Minister Clement Attlee announced the calling of a National Convention in Newfoundland to decide that country's future government) until the first week in April 1949 (when Newfoundland's provincial government behan to function after confederation with Canada) in order to trace their coverage of these developments. The three papers chosen were The London Evening Free Press, The Windsor Daily Star, and The (Toronto) Globe and Mall. The major objective of this study will be to determine the attitude of the south-western Ontario papers towards Newfoundland and confederation.
