Early Acadian Staff


Unfortunately, there are no extensive records in the archives documenting the university's staff members. However, some 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. Many Acadian names appear in this list, and we include it here in acknowledgement of their presence.
