Subseries contains an annotated bibliography of compost resources compiled and annotated by Lisa Simpson, Department of Biology and MacRae Library, Nova Scotia Agricultural College. It presents literature pertaining to agricultural composting as it relates to ingredients, factors, processes, and product benefits, as well as Bio-Dynamic and vermicompost methods. Specific reference is made to agricultural products, particularly animal and plant wastes. References were acquired from various academic institutions. Selection from the large volume of available composting information was based on the relevance to and usage in Canadian agriculture. Literature which did not pertain to Canadian environmental conditions, or agriculture, was excluded. Articles of special interest have been included though they do not necessarily pertain to the specified locale or to agriculture. Information included dates from 1830 to 1994. Article summaries were composed by the author. References for which a print copy was not obtained (or which an English copy was not obtained) are listed by citation only. To avoid duplication, bibliographical entries are organized into sections according to subject, listed alphabetically within subject area sections, and numbered for purposes of indexing and cross reference to other subject areas.
Subseries contains records created during a study of the forced migration of residents of Africville. The study was sponsored by the Nova Scotia Department of Public Welfare, in association with the Department of National Heath and Welfare, and conducted by Don Clairmont and Dennis Magill for the Institute of Public Affairs (project number 552-21-2). Records in this subseries primarily document the research activities of Don Clairmont and Dennis Magill that led to the publication of the 1971 Africville relocation report. Materials include genealogical information on former residents of Africville, responses to a questionnaire run by Don Clairmont and Dennis Magill , interview files, newspaper clippings, sound recordings, correspondence, and other material.

Series contains over 200 glass negative and lantern slides photographs depict apples and orchard practice. There are also copy negatives and contact prints that were made at a later unknown date. Most of the . Notes on some of the sleeves of the negatives suggest that they date from the period 1898-1907. 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. Also contains: - 120 b&w 5" x 7" prints made from the glass slides, - "'An Apple a Day' : a collection of photographs" exhibit catalogue produced for a 1998 display. - A copy of the [MacRae Library] "Library Trust Fund Update", vol.9:no.1.
