On March 30th, the Rural History Round Table wrapped up another successful season with Dr. Sasha Mullally, associate professor of history at the University of New Brunswick. Dr. Mullally's talk: "The Heroics and Poetics of Interwar Medicine" deconstructed the "country doctor" icon by examining stories about rural doctors which have been published overtime. Focusing on doctors practicing in Maine and Nova Scotia, Mullally separated the myth from the reality.

The Rural History Roundtable returns in September. See you then!
