Fonds · 1975-1997
This fonds documents the experiences of immigrants from Lebanon who settled in Nova Scotia during the latter half of the 20th century and consists of handwritten transcriptions and typed summaries of interviews with members of the Nova Scotia Lebanese community (1978-1980); newspaper clippings about Lebanese community members in Nova Scotia (NS) and Prince Edward Island (PE) (1975-1997); interview questionnaires (1979-1980); research progress report, background notes, maps (ca1976-1980); a few business letters (1977-1985); and a photocopied set of minutes of the Canada Lebanon Society Halifax Branch (1938-1978). The transcriptions are divided into two parts: Nancy Jabbra’s notes and Joseph Jabbra’s notes, while the typed summaries contain both Nancy and Joseph’s notes, roughly interfiled by date. Fonds also includes photographs of a few Nova Scotia Lebanese businesses, churches, clubs, people, and a festival in Sydney NS (between 1977 and 1979). These were taken by Joseph or Nancy Jabbra as part of their study. These social anthropology research files were created and used by Nancy and Joseph Jabbra for their books Voyageurs to a Rocky Shore: the Lebanese and Syrians of Nova Scotia (Halifax N.S.: Institute of Public Affairs, Dalhousie University, 1984) and Peoples of the Maritimes: Lebanese (Tantallon, N.S.: Four East Publications, 1987).

Item · 1942-03-05 - 1943-08-16
Russell Foster was born on July 9, 1918, in Vancouver. He lived with his widowed mother, Florence Minnie Foster, and his sister Bernice and brother Courtney at what was then RR 1, Steveston. Foster was a well-known lacrosse player in the Richmond community and was an alumnus of Richmond High School. After graduating from high school in 1935, Foster took a Sprott-Shaw Commercial course and, in 1937, secured a job as a junior clerk with James Richardson and Sons. Utilizing his education and experiences, he then joined Richmond Dairy Products as an assistant bookkeeper. In October 1940, due to his excellent track record and job performance, Foster became a stenographer and bookkeeper for the City of Richmond. A stenographer is a specialized individual who has received professional training in transcribing speech in shorthand, and they are commonly found in court hearings, depositions, trials, and other legal proceedings. Foster enlisted with the Royal Canadian Air Force on July 21, 1941, and was sent to Brandon, Manitoba for training. He spent the following years in Alberta and Saskatchewan and was promoted to the rank of Pilot Officer in September 1942. Two months later, he left for England. However, on July 18, 1943, Foster and three other Royal Canadian Air Force crew members from #144 Hong Kong Squadron were tragically killed when their aircraft collided with a balloon cable near the aerodrome on Pantelleria, Italy. It was F/O Foster’s first operational flight. Foster was initially buried in the United States Military Cemetery before being transported and reburied in the Enfidaville War Cemetery in Enfidha, Tunisia. SAM.1999.43.7

St. Mary’s Rural High School was opened in September of 1953, to educate students from Grades 7 to 12 from all areas of the Municipality of the District of St. Mary’s in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. Prior to its opening, students from over thirty communities attended several rural Primary to Grade 12 schools. The official opening was held on November 14, 1953, by the Honorable Henry D. Hicks, Minister of Education.

A new high school was built in 1989, and the first high school became St. Mary’s Elementary School (Primary to Grade 6). Grades 7 to 12 moved into the new building next door. At that time, the six former elementary schools across the municipality closed, and all students were bussed to Sherbrooke. In 1999, the name of the high school was changed to St. Mary’s Academy and the elementary school was renamed St. Mary’s Education Centre The Grade 7 students remained in the Education Centre, with Grades 8 to 12 in the Academy. In 2012, the two schools were amalgamated as St. Mary’s Education Centre/Academy. Following the construction of a new wing on the newer school, in 2013 all students were moved into one Primary to Grade 12 facility. The original building was later demolished.
