Deborah Trask, a graduate of Acadia, spent 30 years on the curatorial staff of the Nova Scotia Museum before her retirement as Curator of Buildings & Operations, at which time the Board of Governors appointed her ‘Curator Emeritus’. Deborah is a member of the Board of Directors of the Old Burying Ground Foundation in Halifax and a member [since 1976] of the international Association for Gravestone Studies, based in New England. She has written and lectured extensively on gravestones in Nova Scotia. Currently she has a small museum consulting business and she continues to provide cemetery preservation advice to community groups across the province.
