Name of creator
James Baxter was born in Onslow, Nova Scotia in 1844. The son of the Rev. John Baxter, he attended the Theological Seminary in Truro, Nova Scotia before studying at Halifax's Dalhousie College from 1863 to 1864. James Baxter is known to have attended lectures delivered by James Ross at both institutions.
The materials were accessioned by Dalhousie Univeristy Archives in 1971. The records in this fonds were received by President Stanley Mackenzie in 1917, but the full custodial history is unknown.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of notes of lectures on logic delivered by James Ross at the Theological Seminary in Truro, Nova Scotia (1860-1861) and on Moral Philosophy at Dalhousie College (1863-1864), as well as certificates of attendance from the 1860s and a photograph of Thomas McCulloch and others.
