Name of creator
Dale Bernard Miquelon was born 27 September 1940. He earned a BA from the University of Alberta (1963), an MA from Carleton University (1966) and a PhD from the University of Toronto (1973). He worked for the National Historic Site Division in Ottawa from 1963 to 1964, and was a summer session lecturer at Laurentian University in 1966, prior to joining the faculty of the University of Saskatchewan's department of history as an assistant professor, in 1970. Miquelon remained with the University throughout his career, earning the rank of full professor in 1979, serving as the Associate Dean of Arts and Science (Humanities and Fine Arts) from 1984 to 1989, and as department head from 1990 to 1995. From 1989 to 1991 he had a concurrent appointment as an adjunct professor of history with the University of Manitoba. Miquelon is the author of Dugard of Rouen: French Trade to Canada and the West Indies, 1729-1770 and Society and Conquest: The Debate on the Bourgeoisie and Social Change in French Canada 1700-1850, contributed to several books, and is the author of numerous articles and reviews. He retired from the University in 2006.
Scope and content
This fonds contains materials primarily relating to Miquelon's career with the University of Saskatchewan. Miquelon created the first Canadian history course at the University designed for Native students; and taught numerous courses on early Canadian history and francophone Canada. These identify Miquelon as a conscientious lecturer and innovative teacher. Materials relating to Miquelon's published articles and books, as well as his unpublished conference presentations, are included. His Society and Conquest brought together in English translation many articles by French Canadian historians, making their contribution to historiography accessible to many Anglophone historians and students for the first time. His correspondence, both as student and colleague to some of the more influential Canadian historians, is of interest; as are the materials relating to University and departmental administration.
