People at Dalhousie University

The University Archives contains extensive records on various people associated with Dalhousie University.  We do not hold genealogical records (e.g., birth records, marriage certificates, etc.) of these individuals, we only hold their personal papers and adminstrative records created at Dalhousie.  We have created the following resources to help researchers locate information on individuals:

  • Finding aids catalogue for University Records - This list contains descriptions of virtually all materials held by the University Archives.
  • Onsite databases - We have a number of internal databases we can search for names, subjects, etc.  Our databases contain information on some of the university's photographs as well as our unprocessed archival records.
