Biographical history

Evans Estabrooks was a former president of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College Alumni Association. Born in 1942 on a farm near Sackville, New Brunswick, he attended NSAC between 1958-1962 and graduated with a BSc Agr from Macdonald College at the University of Guelph. Estabrooks worked in horticultural extension in New Brunswick and Ontario before moving to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Fredericton Research Station, where he pursued fruit crop research. In the late 1990s he served as president of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College Alumni Association, also holding positions with the New Brunswick Institute of Agrologists and the Agricultural Institute of Canada. After his retirement from government he started a business in horticultural crop production and pest management. He is the author of a 2019 memoir called Haydays.
