Warren Ervine (posthumous) Recipient CNSA Award
Warren Ervine, Fort Sackville Foundation (FSF) Archivist from 2009 until his passing in Fall 2020, was posthumously recognized by the Council of Nova Scotia Archives for outstanding volunteer service to the Nova Scotia archival community. Warren was one of two Anna Hamilton Memorial Award recipients announced by the Council on December 15, 2020.
At the time of his passing, Warren and his team of archives volunteers were working on the Fort Sackville map collection, ensuring they will be properly cared for, documented and catalogued so public access to this resource can be improved. He is deeply missed as someone who brought enthusiasm and vitality to all the Scott Manor House projects he was associated with. A memorial tribute describing Warren’s many contributions and interests is found in the December 2020 issue of Scott Manor News.
In 2013, another Fort Sackville Foundation volunteer, Ken Dodsworth received the same award, in part for his work on the photo collection. The Foundation and ultimately, the public have benefitted from the volunteer contributions exemplified by Warren Ervine and Ken Dodsworth dedicated to preserving and promoting Bedford heritage.
