Wallace Brown

Professor Emeritus in History

Convocation: October 19, 1997

During his 30 years at the University of New Brunswick, Wallace Brown contributed much to the field of North American and international Loyalist history.

His work has helped Loyalist studies to be recognized as a valid area of historical research. Dr. Brown's two major books, The King's Friends and The Good Americans, are regarded as classics of historical scholarship. He has also authored over 40 journal articles for publications in Canada, the United States and throughout the world.

One of the few Canadians elected Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, Dr. Brown played a major role in bringing the Loyalist Papers Project to fruition. As a result, the Harriet Irving Library is one of four repositories in the world for a major Loyalist collection.
