CA BI MG 12.82 · Fonds · 1938-2011

This fonds consists primarily of textual records documenting the career of Dr. Robert J. Morgan. Over the span of almost five decades, Dr. Morgan held the position of historian, archivist, professor, author, and community leader. Records series documenting Morgan's early career at Xavier Junior College (1962-1966) and then as historian at Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site (1971-1976) are included as well as records connected with his time working at College of Cape Breton/University College of Cape Breton (now Cape Breton University - CBU) as professor of history and Director of the Beaton Institute. While at CBU, Dr. Morgan also held the first Dean of Research and Development position. Dr. Morgan was active in the heritage field both at a national and provincial level working with the Association of Canadian Archives (ACA) and the Council of Nova Scotia Archives (CNSA).

Other series in the fonds reflect Morgan's work with local historical societies and community organizations dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Cape Breton's built and documentary heritage. A substantial amount of research notes, index cards and manuscript drafts accompanying Morgan's publications are also included, as well as some evidence of post-retirement contract work.

Series featuring Dr. Morgan's personal and family history include a small portion of records related to Dr. Morgan's involvement with St. Anthony Daniel parish and the Diocese of Antigonish. Personal records and photographs of Dr. Morgan's wife, Barbara Ann Morgan (nee MacKinnon) and her parents (Justice A.H. MacKinnon and Annie MacKinnon nee Ryan) are also found in the collection. Dr. Morgan's love for gardening and botany are represented as well.

A small amount of artifacts including awards and family memorabilia are also included.
