            1969-1974, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            Mount A has a long tradition of being a fine university. I need not say more than two of my daughters graduated from Mt A, myself, my father, his mother, and her father. Our family's graduates stretch through the 19th to 21st centuries. That says something about Mount Allison.
