Glenn Stephen Ells exams

  • MS-14-47, MS-14, Box 134, Folder 5
  • File
  • December 1913 - March 1915
This file contains 25 exam papers given between the junior and senior year for subjects associated with agriculture at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. Exam papers are mostly typed and cover a range of topics from entomology, dairy, animal husbandry, commercial law, mathematics, and English literature. The exams are annotated and scribbled over and appear to mainly belong to one student Glen Stephen Ells. One exam paper in particular shows strategy planning for a hockey game on the reverse of which Ells was a team-member. Further research on Ells shows him mentioned in early NSAC student papers as having joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI in summer 1915 and was sent to Great Britain and then Europe via Val Cartier, PQ. As part of a machine gun company he was killed in action in September 1916. All of his service records including training, transfers, will etc are available online at Library and Archives Canada ( ELLS, GLENN STEPHEN; Regimental No: 415526)

Fred Sears fonds

  • MS-14-30
  • Fonds
  • 1898-1907, 1998

This fonds includes published and unpublished papers, correspondence to and from Fred Sears between 1905-1907 while he was Professor of Horticulture at NSAC from 1905-1907. The fonds contains over 200 glass negative and lantern slides discovered in the basement of Harlow Institute, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, Truro, NS around 1997, they are believed to have been taken by Fred Sears. There are also copy negatives and contact prints that were made at a later unknown date. Most of the photographs depict apples and orchard practice. Notes on some of the sleeves of the negatives suggest that they date from the period 1898-1907. We have been unable to document who actually took the photographs, which show considerable skill and an artistic flair for composition. There are 120 b&w 5" x 7" prints made from the glass slides, and documents related to the exhibition of the fonds in the MacRae Library.

Biographical : Fred C. Sears taught at the Horticultural School in Wolfville which operated from 1894-1904 and then took up a position as Professor of Horticulture at NSAC from 1905-1907. In 1907 he accepted a position as Professor of Pomology at the Massachusetts Agricultural College. It was there in 1914 that he wrote a textbook entitled Productive Orcharding. The book is illustrated with photographs akin to those in this collection. One photo is the same as one in the collection, but from a different angle. It seems likely that many photographs illustrating the book were taken in Nova Scotia, probably Wolfville. Sears dedicated his book to Robert W. Starr, a close friend and former president of the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers Association.
