It's been a while since I posted about the mill whistle project, so this is a quick update to say that it's still going!
Since my return from Corner Brook, I've been compiling resources, conducting telephone interviews with individuals I missed while in Newfoundland, and locating references in literature with the help of an assistant. Later this month, I'll begin contacting individuals who no longer live in Newfoundland to arrange telephone interviews. I'm also hoping to get in touch with management at the mill to request photographs and measurements of the actual whistle. (If anyone reading this has personal contacts who could help in this regard, I'd appreciate a quick email to email@example.com).
I'm excited to continue working on this project given the response from the community!
