1930s
Three Mount Allison alumni were recently
inducted into the Sackville Arts Wall of Fame,
which was launched in 2009 after Sackville
was awarded a national designation as one
of the country's Cultural Capitals of Canada. A
ceremony outside of Town Hall saw the three
inductees' plaques unveiled. Shown left to
right are: (seated)
Pauline Harborne ('37)
,
Krista (K.V.) Johansen ('90)
, and
Cynthia
Adams ('79)
, who accepted the award on
behalf of her husband, the late
Glenn Adams
('66).
Standing behind are
Peter Higham
(Mount Allison Music librarian),
Karen Bam-
ford
(associate professor, English), and
John
Murchie
(co-ordinator of Struts Gallery &
Faucet Media Arts Centre), all of whom presented
special tributes about each of the inductees.
Verna Gass submitted the following informa-
tion on her father, the late
Cecil R. Webber
('35)
, after reading the article Made with Love
on the history of Mount Allison's handmade
diplomas. "During his years as a student and
for many years afterwards, Cecil's calligra-
phy graced the graduation certificates of the
academy and university. Also, during and fol-
lowing his ordination to the Ministry of the
United Church of Canada, his `labour of love'
was continued on the graduation certificates
of Pine Hill Divinity Hall."
1960s
Penny (Chambers) Annand ('60)
writes,
"The Home Economics Class of '60 has done
it again! The latest class reunion took place
in Ontario over two days with all in atten-
dance thanks to computer technology.

sharing, laughs and a few tears (we always think
of our late seventh grad,

)."

Sackville

Music, interesting
people, conversation,
little shops with nice stuff,
good food, and a feeling
everything's going
to be okay.
Bring us your boredom,
we'll trash it for free.
