Dates of existence



Beginning in 1989 writer and broadcaster Marjory Whitelaw undertook a women's oral history project which she conducted in Nova Scotia. A similar project, the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick's Women's Oral History Project, began in 1988, and was organized by oral history archivist Janet Maclellan Toole. Both projects were assisted by the Council of Maritime Premiers; the Nova Scotia project was encouraged by the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism and Culture, the Nova Scotia Cabinet Secretariat and the Women's Directorate of Nova Scotia. The Provincial Archives of New Brunswick provided transcription, supervision and fundraising assistance during the course of the project which appears to have ended in 1992.
