Biographical history

Dr. Anthony R. Pugh was born and raised in Liverpool, England. He attended Cambridge University where he received a Bachelor of Arts (1953); Master of Arts (1954); and PhD (1959). He then 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 (UNB). As a scholar, he published studies of Honoré de Balzac, Blaise Pascal, and, perhaps most notably, Marcel Proust. He was also well known in the Fredericton music community and served on the UNB Creative Arts Committee throughout his time at the university. He also served on the Board of Directors for Debut Atlantic and wrote numerous program notes. He passed away on February 6, 2012.
