Biographical history

Richard Apostle is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Dalhousie University. He received a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree from Simon Fraser University and a Master of Arts and PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1988, Apostle co-wrote Public Policing in Nova Scotia with Philip Stenning for the Royal Commission on the Donald Marshall Jr. Prosecution. From 1988 to 1989, he conducted an employment trends survey for the Information Services profession. In addition to these two projects, Apostle was also involved in the Marginal Work World Project and was a member of the Individual Quotas committee, which dealt with quotas for Nova Scotian fisheries. He has also done extensive research on the Faroese political economy.

The records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in seven accessions, the first two being in 1995 and the remainder taking place in 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, and 2008. Prior to that, the records were in the custody of Richard Apostle.
