Dagskrá 2 (II) was a daily newspaper published in Winnipeg over a two year period. It was edited and mostly written by an Icelandic immmigrant to Canada, a leading writer and physician, Sigurður Júlíus Jóhannesson (1868-1956). In its pages he campaigned for the temperance (prohibition) cause, women's suffrage, freedom of religion, and socialism. His liberal sentiments incurred the hostility of the establishment of the Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America, headquartered in Winnipeg [Source: Wilhelm Kristjanson, handwritten notes, undated]. The editor was "one of the most prominant and popular of the Icelandic Canadian poets. From the time of his arrival in Canada in 1899, he played a . . . prominent part in community life as a physician, journalist, poet [and translator], temperance worker and a zealous advocate of social and political reform", according to the Kristjanson (The Icelandic People in Manitoba, p. 489). This serial published from 1901-1903. The editor closed this paper when he left to attend medical studies in Chicago, but he was to return to Winnipeg for other editorial and authorial accomplishments. Watson Kirkonnell includes the author's poetry in his anthology, Canadian Overtones, Columbia Press, 1935. Referenced in Hjartar, pp. 42 and 73. Rare. N° de ref. de la librería 35646
