Name of creator
Frank Baird (1870-1951) was a Presbyterian minister and author of several books, including Roger Davis, Loyalist, Rob MacNab: Stories of Old Pictou, and Parson John of the Labrador. Born in New Brunswick, he was ordained in 1901 and held pastorates in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland, although much of his life was spent in Pictou, Nova Scotia.
The materials were accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1971. The custodial history is unknown.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of a draft typescript of Baird's "Doctor Archibald MacMechan: An Estimate and an Appreciation," commissioned by The Halifax Chronicle for their 1923 New Year's edition and withdrawn at Archibald MacMechan's request. Also present are three letters from MacMechan concerning the article and a later letter from Stanley MacKenzie regarding an essay by Baird rejected by The Dalhousie Review.
