Doyle Lahey ’08 has started a Masters of Library and Information Science at Dalhousie

After obtaining a STU History Honours degree, Doyle Lahey has pursued graduate studies in History and Library Science.  Here is an update he sent us:

“Once I graduated from STU in 2008,  I left for Halifax to undertake an MA in History at Saint Mary’s University, where I was offered the Faculty of Graduate Studies Research Fellowship. I studied under Dr. Michael Vance, an expert in Scottish and Irish immigration. My thesis compared the pre-Famine Irish experience of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Saint John, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, between 1750 and 1850. I successfully defended my thesis in June 2010. After SMU I headed to Dalhousie, where I was accepted into the School of Information Management to undertake a Masters of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree. Outside of school, I am conducting research for Pier 21 on the fire that occurred in the 1940s, which severely damaged the immigration port service. I am also the Co-Chair of the student chapter for the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA) for Dalhousie University.”
