William Mortimer MacVicar (b. 1851, Port Medway, Nova Scotia - d. 1928).
"Annapolis Royal is known to have been intimately connected with the stirring events of a period extending over nearly three hundred years ; but comparatively few, even of its own residents, are acquainted with its history. A few works are extant affording valuable information respecting the history of the province at large, with occasional reference to this section of the country. The majority of our people, however, seldom see these books, or, if they do see them, fail to gather the continuous history of the town from the disconnected paragraphs of a general treatise." - from the Preface.
