Name of creator
Harriet Taber Richardson was an American from Cambridge, Massachusetts, who spent her summers in the Annapolis Royal area from about 1923. An admirer of Samuel Champlain, her interest in him broadened to include Port Royal. In 1928 she teamed up with local historian Loftus Morton Fortier to rebuild the Habitation. She established The Associates of Port Royal, with chapters in Massachusetts, New York and Virginia, with the goal of raising money for the reconstruction.
Records were accessioned by the Archives in 1982. Custodial history prior to that is unknown.
