À propos de Jody

Originaire des Cantons-de-l’Est, j’ai été élevé dans une ferme laitière près de Lennoxville. Toujours intéressé par l’histoire de la région, j’ai obtenu mon baccalauréat de l’Université Bishop’s et j’ai poursuivi des études en histoire à l’Université de Sherbrooke. J’ai travaillé avec des organismes du patrimoine dans les Cantons-de-l’Est, notamment le Musée Colby-Curtis, la Compton County Historical Museum Society et j’ai servi comme archiviste au Centre de ressources pour l’étude des Cantons-de-l’Est. À partir de 2006, je publie des articles sur l’histoire, les gens et la culture des townships – en essayant de faire connaître notre belle région et son riche patrimoine.
