History of Acadians at Mount Allison: Acknowledgements

A virtual exhibit on the history of Acadians at Mount Allison University and in Sackville, New Brunswick.

Banner: The History of Acadians at Mount Allison


This project had been made possible in part by the Government of Canada and the Marjorie Young Bell Endowment Fund. The Mount Allison University Archives is grateful to both for their generosity and their support.

Gratitude should also be expressed to le Centre d'études acadiennes Anselme-Chiasson and to all of the members of the community who took the time to speak with me, including Alex Fancy, Monika Boehringer, Peter Hicklin, Eloi Lirette, David White, and Xavier Gould. I also wish to thank the Mount Allison University Libraries and Archives, particularly David Mawhinney, for providing me with the opportunity to research this topic and to create this virtual exhibition. It has been an honour and a pleasure to document the history of Acadians at my beloved alma mater, and I hope that this guide will serve as a source of pride for all Acadians at Mount Allison, past, present, and future.

Mount Allison University would also like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians (from all four directions), of the land on which we meet. It is upon ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaw and Wolastoquyik (Maliseet) peoples that Mount Allison University is built.
