The editorial team at Acadiensis was saddened to hear of the passing of Robert Craig Brown. A former president of the Canadian Historical Association, two-time dean at the University of Toronto, and professor emeritus in the Department of History, Brown was a productive scholar perhaps most well-known for his biography of Prime Minister Robert Laird Borden. While his scholarly focus was national, much of his work – such as his excellent article on “The Nationalism of the National Policy” – had profound implications for those of us who study Atlantic Canada. Everyone at Acadiensis would like to extend their deepest condolences to Brown’s family, friends, and colleagues.
