"Bromley’s Royal Acadian School, which opened in Halifax in 1813–14, represented an important departure in education for the colonies. It was non-sectarian and, like the local bible society, drew as its supporters a cross-section of local society comprised of liberal-minded elements both inside and outside the Church of England. Although the aim of the school was to attack illiteracy, encourage morality, and promote industry, it also challenged the existing notions of privilege and authority in society. The controversy inspired by Anglican opposition to its establishment one of the school’s leading critics was Judge Alexander Croke – would have daunted a lesser mortal than Bromley. Instead, acting as both teacher and administrator, he thrived on the publicity his efforts aroused. The opponents of denominational privilege, led by Thomas McCulloch, rallied to his side. His school also benefited from being in the right place at the right time and proved to be an important social experiment. It combined under one roof inexpensive education for the children of the emergent middle class, free education for the children of the poor during the serious depression that followed the Napoleonic Wars, and a workshop for the unemployed at a time when local society had not yet begun to cope with the relief of the able-bodied poor."

["Despite constant financial uncertainties, the school continued to attract the patronage of the city’s élite and a clientele of shopkeepers and artisans whose children’s educational prospects were extremely precarious in a town without public schooling. Because it was neither a charity school nor a private school, Bromley’s institution represented the inauguration of a middle way in education much needed by the town’s nascent bourgeoisie. The Royal Acadian School was one of the first institutions of colonial society in which middle-class self-interest and the interests of an increasingly middle-class society could be combined. Here charity pupils – black and immigrant – and fee-paying pupils –the sons and daughters of rising Halifax families (both Protestant and Cat holic) – were put through their paces in the three Rs, religion, and vocational training. Parents relished the opportunity to secure a modestly priced education for their children, and for the pupils the Royal Acadian School provided an invaluable start in life." - from Judith Fingard's Dictionary of Canadian Biography entry on Bromley (VII:107-110).

See also Fingard's "English Humanitarianism and the Colonial Mind : Walter Bromley in Nova Scotia, 1813-1825," in The Canadian Historical Review, Vol.LIV, No.2, June 1973. Pp 123-151 with a mention of this work along with The English Grammar Made Easy [...] as "the extant manuals" published for the students of the school(footnote 44, pp.132-3).

A sample from the Nova Scotia section:
Q. What are the inhabitants of Nova Scotia? A. The inhabitants are a mixture of English, Scotch, Irish, Welch, Dutch, Germans, French, and a considerable numberof Emigrants from the United States of America; also some native Indians; and emancipated negroes brought from the United States of America during the late war: these last reside near Halifax, and appear very poor and miserable.

Q. What Seminaries of learning have been established in Nova Scotia? A. There are in Halifax a Grammar School, the National or Madras School, the Acadian or Lancastrian School, the Catholic School, and the Dalhousie Coll ege; the latter unfinished. Besides these, in rural situations, there are King's College and its Academy, at Windsor, and the Pictou Academy.

Q. What is the disposition of the Indians? A. The Indians of Nova Scotia, called Micmac, are harmless unless provoked, and their honesty is proverbial. They are of the middle stature, faces broad, aquiline nose, coarse black hair, and complexion nearly of a copper colour. Their covering is a blue frock or coat, with a girdle tied round the waist, with trowsers of the same for the men; and a blanket with a blue cloth petticoat, and a cap resembling a sugar-loaf, ornamented with beads, generally compose the dress of the women.

Q. What are their habits? A. The men are by no means so dissipated in their habits as some prejudiced or uninformed Authors have represented them; and while it must be admitted that there are many confirmed drunkards in the neighbourhood of Halifax, yet it is also certain, that there still exists a considerable proportion of sober, intelligent characters in various parts of the country, who are by no means averse to agricultural pursuits, as has been recently proved by actual experiment. ---------

Index. 4to, red cloth, maroon le ttering to front board and spine, colour illustrated endpapers. Photographyby Ed Kirkpatrick. "Many students and many people who have seen Mary Shepp ard Burton's work have asked for this book. Asked to see her work time and time again. Asked to know what makes her "tick." How does she produce such superior works of hoked art on such a variety of subjects, and in so many extraordinary ways? This is the reason why so many fine elements have been brought together to make this book. And this is why, much like her wonderfulwork, this book is unlike most others. Her writings are offered up here ex actly as she wrote them. They may have been entries in a notebook or journal. Thoughts jotted down on the back of an envelope, or written between the lines of someone else's text that she found meaningful. Look at them. Leaf through them to find what is of moment to you, and allow hem to open your mind to possibilities in your own life and work - whatever that work may be.In this book there is simply what constitutes a compendium of Mary Sheppar d Burton's unbelievably beautiful life work - and the lovely, undestated, humble, from-the-heart writings that accompany her paintings in wool, and validate them. These are accompanied as well by the work of some of her friends: among the finest textile artists in the world today." (from the dj). Contents : Front Matter; A Call to Creativity; Searching for the First Threads in Time; Txtiles That Lift the Spirit; I Dream in Color.

Frank Cameron (b. 1938, New Glasgow, Pictou County). "If you remember Frank's Bandstand, Bobby Curtola, the CBC-TV news show Gazette, and, even farther back, CHNS radio's revolutionary move to Top 40 programmiong, Frank Cameron's memoir will deposit you happily in Rock & Roll heaven. In this hilarious and insightful book, Frank takes readers from his childhood to his present life, hosting a show at Seaside FM. In between is a satisfying chronicleof a media personality who never takes himself too seriously. Frank is fun ny, but he doesn't shy away from stating his opinions and telling it like it is. Remember Frank giving a weather forecast from the top of Citadel Hillin the middle of a thunderstorm, his CBC umbrella turned inside out? His c omic exchanges with Doug Saunderrs on Maritimes Tonight? These are the on-air moments, but there was plenty going on that audiences couldn't see. How do announcers react when they flub a line live? How does our intrepid on-air personality deal with listeners who believe a station that is currently off the air should inform their listeners... on the air?" Frank Cameron met the Queen Mother and attended the Beatles' 1964 Toronto press conference. He once drove the 17-year-old Sarah McLauchlan home during a break in a recording session. He's met Gordon Lightfoot and Burton Cummings. He's a friendof Anne Murray, and he's worked with some of thjer best-known reprteres an d anchors CBC has produced. Frank Cameron's radio career began at CKEC, when he was in highj school. In 1959, he moved to Halifax and a career at CHNS. In 1967, he became a full-time staff announcer at CBC, hosting various radio and television programs." - from the rear. - from rear. Foreword by Bobby Curtola. Chapters : 1.
