"'The Architecture of Rural Society' consists of a series of lectures delivered at King's College, Halifax, N.S., to mark the establishment of the HacKenley Memorial Foundation in Rural Sociology. The lectureship memorializes a former Archbishop of Nova Scotia, the Most Reverend John HacKenley, D.D., whose devotion to the well-being of the rural population was so great that his name has already become a tradition in that Province". -- Preface.
"At the request of the Memorial Committee the inaugural lectures have been put in a permanent and somewhat abbreviated form in the hope that they may perform a useful service as orientation material for those who may attend subsequent courses under the auspices of the Foundation. .... They contain the mature thinking of a longtime professor of Sociology at King's College and one who has had unusual opportunity for research in the field of rural society". -- Preface.

Robert Addison's library : a short-title catalogue of the books brought to Upper Canada in 1792 by the first missionary sent out to the Niagara Frontier by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel
"[C]ompiled by William J. Cameron and George McKnight with the assistance of Michaele-Sue Goldblatt".
Includes bibliographical references.
"[O]ne of the first books that Addison added to the splendid collection of 16th, 17th, and 18th century volumes that he brought with him to Canada can probably be read as a comment on his experience in a new land. During the 37 years remaining to him, Addison was to add many another book that reflects the history of his own life and of his own locality -- Niagara-on-the-lake and the Niagara peninsula. Most of these books have been omitted from this catalogue, however, by the simple expedient of excluding all books printed after 1791 that are still to be found in the library kept at the Rectory of St. Mark's Church, Niagara-on-the-lake. The cataloguing of these post-1791 acquisitions must be left to other hands, for our purpose in this catalogue is to identify as accurately as possible the original library that Addison brought from England when the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts sent him out to Niagara as a 'proper person' to be their first missionary in the area. This preface is an attempt to analyse that library and to describe how it came to be built during the century before Addison set out on his historic journey". -- Preface.
