Historians at Louisbourg
Published February 2, 2015 by A.J.B. Johnston

I think at its peak, the Fortress might have had seven historians working on the project. In my time there were usually three. More recently the number dropped to one. Currently there are none. It would be a shame, a grave mistake, if the investment that was made to give Louisbourg historical depth, were to be cast aside. The place needs at least one historian there working with the historical documentation and sharing what she or he finds with the interpretive staff.

FORTRESS OF LOUISBOURG RETIREMENT SPEECH BY BILL O'SHEA, HEAD OF HISTORICAL RESOURCES

Fortress of Louisbourg                                                                                                                                                                            24 January 1997

Eric Krause: historian, archivist, Louisbourg professional, sportsman, community volunteer, gadfly, computer maven.

As an historian, over the last 3 decades, Eric Krause has contributed substantially to the physical and intellectual structure of the Fortress of Louisbourg. Since his arrival here, he has been on the ground floor of all major decisions relating to the reconstruction of the Fortress. He also had major influence in the presentation of the historic site as agenda chairman of the Period Presentation Committee. He has played an active role in the generation-long fight to aspire to standards of accuracy and to convince people that the accurate application of information is our strength.

As an archivist/librarian, Eric Krause took over the torch passed on by people such as Gilles Proulx and has maintained and upgraded the library and archives. Saving much useful material from destruction, he helped create a more professional mindset. His computerization of data has set the standard for the future. It is no exaggeration to say that he wanted to take us where no one had ever been before, at least here in this lonely corner of Atlantic Canada.

As a general Louisbourg professional, Eric Krause made two contributions within the last 2 years that stand out in my mind. The first is the work that he did to research and help design the Louisbourg commemorative stamp that was issued in 1995. Without Eric's work the stamp project would not have been accomplished. The second major contribution is his work on the Louisbourg Institute. He was at the secret meeting in the fall of 1994 that got the idea rolling again after a hiatus of over 10 years. He served as the Louisbourg co-chair and was the inspiration behind major accomplishments during the first year including setting up the Web Site, working with the Schoolnet project and being the lead editor of Aspects of Louisbourg.

As a sportsman we all marvel at Eric's wide-ranging involvements from hockey to tennis, golf, slowpitch and walking. For those of us who were involved in the early days of the Parks Canada Slowpitch Tournament the one figure that stands out and could be considered responsible for the success of that undertaking is Krause. This led to movement for his nomination to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and its subsequent rejection by the Cooperstown people. But we got the rejection on official letterhead.

As a community volunteer, Eric Krause made an outstanding contribution to the 1995 celebrations. He was one of the original members of the Louisbourg 1995 Commemoration Society and an active participant on the small committee that set up the programme for the events which made the summer a memorable event for Nova Scotia. His work on the Jost house established the heritage value of the property. It encouraged Joan Harris not only to complete that work but to move on to other exciting projects which will involve Eric.

As a gadfly, Krause has challenged many of our preconceived notions. He saw nothing as impossible and would not qualify his opinions to make it easier on our consciences. I remember a former Superintendent directing me to get Eric to shut up, and my saying, "How do I do that John?"

As a computer maven, Krause has pulled us kicking and screaming into the New Age. He has introduced new systems and a level of sophistication that is the envy of our counterparts in Halifax and at the University. We still don't understand all that he had done in that area but it is good.

Eric has agreed to remain associated with the Louisbourg Institute, though not on the Board. He has volunteered to spend some time upgrading data bases. But it is indeed an end of an era. We will miss his energy, his stubbornness, his commitment, his patience and his vision of Louisbourg.

He's been a valued friend and colleague and we wish him well.
