On Monday, November 9, Atlantic Canada lost one of its foremost historians when Ernest Forbes passed away. Ernie was a great champion of the place of the Maritimes in the Canadian historical narrative, and any historian of Canada – whether a regional specialist or not – is familiar with his work. He was also a dedicated teacher who mentored a number of scholars whose work has appeared in the pages of the journal. His contribution to the field of Atlantic Canadian studies cannot be overstated. Today’s Throwback Thursday piece is a 2012 interview with Ernie that reveals his intelligence, his modesty, and his sense of humour.
