Dear Charlotte County Archives Members,


Please join us at 7:00 p.m. in the Charlotte County Courthouse on Thursday, March 28 for our Annual General Meeting. Hear from our Chair, Franklin Cardy, about all the exciting recent developments at the Archives. Help us honour long-serving Archivist Janice Fairney, who is retiring this spring, and hear from guest speaker Dr. James Murray.


 James Murray was raised in Salisbury, New Brunswick.  After receiving a BA (Hon) in Political Science and an MA in Classics from the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, he completed a PhD in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He returned to UNB to take a position in the Department of Classics and Ancient History and served as Chair of his department for a decade, before being appointed Dean of the Faculty of Arts in 2005. Following his retirement in 2016 the University awarded him the honorary rank of Professor Emeritus of Classics and Ancient History, and he continues to lead tours to Greece as part of the UNB Travel Study Program. James and his wife Sharon moved to St. Andrews in 2015, where he became interested in all things Baptist in Charlotte County. It is this area of study that Dr. Murray will shed light on in his talk at the AGM. The title of his talk is “The Early Baptists of Bayside.”
