During the years spent on researching and writing the history of francophone education in Western Canada I have benefitted from the assistance of research grants from the Small Faculties Endowment Fund Support for the Advancement of Scholarship, University of Alberta, and the Bourse d’appui à la recherche, Institut de recherche, Faculty St. Jean, University of Alberta. I had the unfailing help of Diane Audet, Dorene Chalifoux, Jonathan Gupta, and Laura Thompson who assisted me in scrutinizing archival materials, newspapers and other resources for information on francophone experiences with schooling. I am indebted to the tenacious Karen St. James who, in the 1980’s, spent many hours in front of an “archaic” computer entering data on school districts established by French-speaking settlers in Alberta, 1885-1939.

For the purpose of this website I have selected only my publications on the history of francophone education in Western Canada. These articles focus on the curriculum used in bilingual schools, the impact of Anglo-conformity goals of schooling on French language continuity, French teacher shortages and its effects on cultural transmission in French-speaking communities, bilingual school trustees’ role in cultural transmission and cultural conflicts engendered, and the effects of official and unofficial school inspectors on cultural transmission in bilingual school districts.
