Name of creator
The Grand Manan Historical Society, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, was formed in 1930 under the aegis of Buchanan Charles and was incorporated in 1931. In 1934, the first "Grand Manan Historian" was published by Mr. Charles and the Society as a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the settlement of Grand Manan.
The publication of the "Grand Manan Historian" became the main focus of the Society. It planned to publish original works and to republish the many existing reports and essays concerning the Island, its fishery, its geology, its flora and fauna, and its insular way of life.
The Grand Manan Historical Society, together with the Grand Manan Museum Inc., supports the Grand Manan Archives. By 2002, 26 issues of "Grand Manan Historian" had been published. The Seal Cove sandbar has been created as the Seal Cove Seawall National Historic Site and Society and works to preserve the area. There is a plan to create an art gallery for the preservation of the art of Grand Manan. Gleneta Hettrick retired as Archivist in 1998, but the Archives continues to receive grants from the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) and the Council of Archives of New Brunswick to pursue its work.
