Early Acadian Staff
Unfortunately, there are no extensive records in the archives documenting the university's staff members. However, some of the documents make clear that Acadians made up a significant portion of Mount Allison’s employees, particularly in the second half of the twentieth century. This is due in part to the migration of Acadians who came looking for work in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, settling the area of Middle Sackville. In 1978, the Allisonian yearbook published a list of the university’s physical plant employees, including residence, custodial, and grounds employees, amongst which many Acadian names appear. We include the list below in acknowledgement of their presence.
