The first issue of the Maritime Labour Herald was published, announcing itself as “a paper devoted to the interests of labor.” “We are a working class paper in working class dress and right on the job fighting the battle of the working class.” Organized by J.B. McLachlan and B.N. Brodie, it was guided by the editorship of William Ulrich Cotton. The paper’s circulation reached over 6,000 and continued for five years. (Also see ‘McLachlan…’, November. 3, 1937.)
