MacRae Library Agricola exhibition - "An apple a day" from the Fred Sears fonds

Subseries contains a collection of photographs used in the "An apple a day" exhibit held at the MacRae Library in 1998, highlighting the photographic glass slides found on campus that were believed to be taken by Fred Sears. Dr. Alex Georgallas was the acting archivist and curated the exhibit of prints of the Fred Sears glass slides. Most of the photographs center around apples and orchard practices and buildings of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. Notes on some of the sleeves of the negatives suggest that they date from the period 1906/7. It seems likely that they are connected with courses taught by Fred C. Sears at the NSAC during this period.
