Opened in 1973, the Alfred Whitehead Music Library is named after musician, painter, philatelist, and author Alfred Whitehead. He served in various positions at Mount Allison teaching music from 1913 to 1974 as both as instructor and Dean of the Conservatory of Music. Housed in the basement of the Marjorie Bell Young Music Conservatory, the library was subsequently expanded and renovated in 2002 with the generous support of the Mount Allison University Alumni class of '84.
