Biographical history

The School of Library Service Associated Alumni Association was founded in early 1974 after being approved by alumni from the school and accepted as legitimate entity by the Dalhousie Alumni Association. The Associated Alumni Association's founding mission was to promote the best interests and professional objectives of the individual members of the association, and among those involved in its founding were Norman Horrocks as Director of the School and John Murchie as the President of the School of Library Service Associated Alumni. The first officers (1974-1975) were John Murchie, Chairfellow; Elaine Rillie, Co-chairfellow; and Bernie Coyle, Secretar

The Associated Alumni meet on a regular basis and sponsor social gatherings, professional workshops, and other events of interest to members. The alumni also elect representatives to serve on committees within the School; in the early days these included the curriculum, admissions and scholarships, non-print media, grievance, and work experience committees. As the association has evolved, it has maintained its close ties to the School.

Custodial history

The records were received in five accessions: July 1984 from Linda Pearse, October 1985 from Robert Cooke, August 1987 from Gwyn Pace, July 1990 from Gwen Whitford, and January 2004 from Judith G. Reade.
