The three of us work on various facets of the histories of law, crime, and justice, primarily in a British context. We might consider ourselves first and foremost social historians, historians of women and gender, or historians of medicine, but typically return time and again to using sources produced by legal processes or to the history of people’s interactions with those legal processes. In addition to fancying an excuse to work together, we wanted a place to put interesting tales from the archives that never quite made it into regular publications, summaries of publications that do appear, reports on research in progress, and the occasional random musing that might be of interest to an audience beyond academia. To begin with, we aim to upload new posts on at least a monthly basis.

This collection contains the websites of the regional municipalities, districts, towns and counties that are responsible for local government in the province of Nova Scotia. Municipal governments in Canada provide citizens with libraries, parks, water systems, local policing, fire departments and roadways. They are also responsible for levying property taxes and enacting land-use bylaws. These responsibilities are all reflected in the content made available on their websites. Municipalities operate under the authority of the provincial government. Since the mid-1990s, the Province of Nova Scotia has been providing financial incentives to encourage municipalities to amalgamate into larger units. As a result many municipalities in Nova Scotia are disappearing as distinct entities. This web archive is an attempt to preserve any web accessible municipal information that is at risk of being permanently lost.

Dr. Ransom Aldrich Myers Jr. also known as RAM and Randy completed a B.A. in physics at Rice University in Houston in 1974, defended his M.Sc. in mathematics at Dalhousie in 1980 and completed his doctorate degree there in 1983. At the conclusion of his education in 1983, Myers was hired as a research scientist by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) in St. John’s Newfoundland. Following a co-authored publication on the collapse of Atlantic cod in 1993, Myers became one of many scientists to raise public awareness of the government’s suppression of scientific work. At this time Myers left DFO, taking appoint as the inaugural Dalhousie Killam Chair of Ocean Studies in 1997 at the Department of Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He created an online database that included maps, plots, and numerical data relating to over 600 fish populations (over 100 species) from all over the world that are downloadable for researchers to use. Through his lab website he shared projects and resources that sought to understand of the changes in marine biodiversity since the advent of industrial fishing. Following his death a legacy website was created to continue the work that he started with scientific contributions to the field of ecology. Access to his textual records and digital files is available through Dalhousie University Archives.
