Commentaires : A grade 5 and 6 school text used in New Brunswick schools. Published in 1965 . Replaced Our New Brunswick Story in the schools in New Brunswick.George MacBeath graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 1946 with high honours in French and History. He achieved both his master's (1949) and doctoral (1955) degrees from the Université de Paris. Dr. MacBeath was the Curator of the New Brunswick Museum's Canadian History Department from 1949 to 1964 and Director of the Museum from 1962 to 1964. He established the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick and the "Archives Act". Dr. MacBeath helped to shape heritage policy in various positions within the provincial government. He was deputy minister of New Brunswick's Historical Resources Administration at which time the Village Historique Acadien and Kings Landing Historical Settlement were developed. He went on to be deputy minister for New Brunswick Heritage and ensured the New Brunswick Museum was recognized as a national institution. Dr. MacBeath hired the first provincial archaeologists and supported the archaeologist's co-operative work with Metepenagiag (Red Bank) First Nations. The Red Bank work led to the declaration of two national historic sites (Augustine Mound and Oxbow) and provided 3,000-year-old cultural information for exhibits, publications and films. The Metepenagiag Heritage Park, a major cultural interpretation center, opened in 2007. The focus of the interpretation is on the archaeological discoveries from the 1970s. Dr. MacBeath was chairman of the board for Kings Landing Corporation and a member of the first board of governor's of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. He was the New Brunswick representative on the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada; president of the Canadian Museums Association; founding member of the Association for Preservation Technology and of the Canadian Art Museums Directors Organization; director and Fellow of the Canadian Geographical Society; chairman of the Military Compound Board; and program coordinator for the New Brunswick Bi-Centennial. As the restoration of Old Government House was planned and executed, Dr. MacBeath was chairman of the Period Restoration sub-committee and of the sub-Committee on Public Use and, in 1995, he published the book "New Brunswick's Old Government House" outlining the history of the building and its occupants. Dr. MacBeath has published twenty-nine biographical sketches of exceptional early New Brunswick and Canadian personages. Author of a school text on this province, he has had a tremendous influence on the historical consciousness of a generation of New Brunswick's youth. He published Great Maritime Achievers in Maritime Technology, at the age of 80. At the age of 84, he continues to write and has co-authored 'A history of the Former York County Jail' which now houses the Jail Museum and the province's Science Centre. The book is now in press. For his devotion and passion to historical endeavours that ensured that the province's Aboriginal, Acadian, and Anglophone heritage was valued and protected, George MacBeath receives the Order of New Brunswick.
