Biographical history

Anthony R. Pugh was born and raised in Liverpool, England. He attended Cambridge University where he received his BA (1953); MA (1954); and PhD (1959). He taught at the University of London, King's College, and Queen's University of Belfast before moving to Canada, where he taught in the French Department at the University of New Brunswick. As a scholar, he published studies of Honoré de Balzac, Blaise Pascal, and, perhaps most notably, Marcel Proust. He was well known in the Fredericton music community, serving on the UNB Creative Arts Committee and the Board of Directors for Debut Atlantic, and writing concert program notes for the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra and other groups. He died on 6 February 2012.
