The Mick Lowe fonds attests to his activism and achievements in the field of writing and journalism. The records demonstrate his dedication and commitment to northern Ontario in general and the labour movement in the region in particular. The fonds contains various files, such as notes, letters, and briefs from Lowe’s work, on a voluntary basis, with the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) Local 6500 in Sudbury in the late 1970s to the 1980s. The fonds also consists of research notes on stories that Lowe covered over the years as a journalist, which includes his collection of various newspapers and periodicals. Many of the stories that Lowe wrote for The Globe and Mail and Northern Life can be found in his fonds which attests to his interests over the years. Lowe’s articles can provide insight as to the political and cultural milieu in Canada and Northern Ontario at the time of their publication. It also consists of Lowe’s personal papers which include his correspondence and notes. Moreover, the files depict and inform us on Northern Ontario and more specifically on labour, activism, and journalism.
