MLA Biographies (1758 - Present)

In 1958, Provincial Archivist, C. Bruce Ferguson published a Directory of the Members of the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia, 1758-1958.  This book was part of the Archives contribution to the celebration of the bicentennial of the establishment of representative government in Nova Scotia, and Canada.  25 years later, Shirley B. Elliott, Legislative Librarian, published and edited a revised edition, The Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia 1758-1983. 

In 2019, as part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the opening of Province House, the Legislative Library published an updated biographical directory for members who served from 1984-2019.  The Library intends to keep this publication up-to-date.

In the future, the Legislative Library plans on providing all of this biographical information online in a searchable web database.  For now, however, these publications are available in PDF.
