Sir Clifford Sifton, owner of the Manitoba Free Press, and his editor, John Wesley Defoe, were well known in Canadian journalistic and political circles, not only it the provincial level, but also federally, during the the years between the wars. John Wesley Dafoe (b. March 8, 1866, Combermere, Ontario – d. January 9, 1944, Winnipeg) was a Canadian journalist and author. George Ramsay Cook, OC, FRSC (b.

"The correspondence in this volume represents the vast majority of the Dafoe - Sifton letters in the period 1919-1927. Those which have been omitted, for reasons of space are of lesser importance and interest, dealing with purely personal matters or repeating opinions and information stated elsewhere in the correspondence. The letters printed here are drawn from both the Defoe Papers at the University of Manitoba Library, and the Sifton Papers, deposited at the Public Archives of Canada. Whereverthe original letter exists, is has been used, though occasionally the lack of an original has necessitated the use of a carbon copy. J.W. Dafoe, was much more fastidious in the care of his correspondence than his employer, even, fortunately, retaining some letters which Sifton suggested should be destroyed." - from the Preface. "No two men participated more vigoronsly in the great debates of the 1920s than Sir Clifford Sifton, owner of the Manitoba Free Press, and his editor, John Wesley Dafoe. Though they occasionallydiffered on details, their fundamental responses to national questions wer e the same. Together they formed a formidable combination and it is not entirely accidental that the character of Canada at the close of the 1920s bore a close, though not exact, resemblance to the Dafoe - Sifton blueprint. Both men were extremely articulate, though Dafoe, the journalist, was especially so. Moreover, now they rarely lived in the same city, Dafoe usually occupying his editorial seat in Winnipeg while Sifton made his headquarters in Toronto, they corresponded regularly and at length. Their letters represent one of the most important available records of the formulation of the ideas and strategies of one of the parties in the public controversies of the1920s. The Dafoe - Sifton letters of this period also represent the best s egment of a correspondence which spanned nearly three decades." - from the introduction. With biographical index and index.
