Early Acadian Faculty
Prior to 1945, there had only been one Acadian instructor at Mount Allison University: Ernest Renée Richard, a native of Dorchester. He taught Law at the university between 1928 and 1934 and went on to become Mayor of Sackville in the 1950s. In the decades that followed, Mount Allison University employed a few of its first Acadian graduates, including Gabriel Chiasson ('49) in Music and Anthony Legere ('50) in French. The following list provides information on these first Acadians to serve as faculty members or instructors at the Mount Allison University institutions.
