MSVU professor's 30 years in Nunavut focus of museum talks
First talk takes place at the Museum of Natural History on Summer Street Sunday at 2 p.m.
A Halifax university professor who lived in Nunavut for 30 years is bringing his stories, pictures and collected artifacts to Halifax’s Museum of Natural History this weekend.
Mount Saint Vincent University professor Nick Newbery is giving three public talks at the museum, hoping to share some of what he learned about life in Canada's Arctic — past and present — living there and teaching school for three decades.
Newbery moved to the Arctic after teaching in England, Northern Ireland and Toronto. He took many photos, and some have been published in books. His latest is "Iqaluit", which is published by Nortext Multimedia.
The first talk is taking place at the museum on Summer Street on Sunday at 2 p.m.
In this part of his interview with Mainstreet's Stephanie Domet, he talks about being out on the land with a group of students when a storm set in.
