Three Questions for LMMI’s New Chair, Philip Smith with Melanie J. Fishbane
Thursday, January 28, 2016 - 13:41
The L.M. Montgomery Institute has a new Chair, Dr. Philip Smith, Professor of Psychology at the University of Prince Edward Island. I asked him a few questions about what he hopes to achieve and what connects him to Montgomery and her work. What becomes clear is a person who adores the popular Charlottetown productions and has great plans for the LMMI.
Each month the LMMI will feature a special item from the our Archive. This month not only features a very exciting item, a rare edition of L.M. Montgomery’s The Watchman and Other Poems, but also we have a special guest post by Robertson Library’s University Archivist & Special Collections Librarian at the University of Prince Edward Island, Simon Lloyd.
