Dr. Albert Charles Poirier (1904 – 1977) was the son of Charles Poirier and Henrietta Robichaud. He lived at various times in Cambridge and North Falmouth, Massachusetts. He was a member of the Order of the Good Time (l’Ordre de Bon Temps, Port-Royal, Nova Scotia).
These records were a part of the Père Clarence d’Entremont accession. Records were collected by Père Clarence d’Entremont and donated to the Société in 1998. Père Clarence was Secretary of the New England Group of the Acadian Historical Society at the time Dr. Poirier was creating these records.
Scope and content:
Fonds consists of three scrapbooks and two slide carousels filled with slides depicting various images associated with l’Ile Sainte-Croix or St. Croix Island and Samuel de Champlain. These were created by Dr. Poirier in an effort to have the island designated a heritage site. Cards are available that correspond with the slides used in presentations to various groups about the Island. The scrapbooks contain correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs and short histories. The dedication of the establishment of Saint Croix Island as a national monument took place 30 June 1968 by the United States National Park Service and the Calais Chamber of Commerce.
