Biographical history

Joseph Thaddeus Hébert was born in Botsford Portage, New Brunswick on September 25, 1890. He obtained a B.A. (1912) and an M.A. (1915) from the University of New Brunswick. He then earned an LL.B. from Harvard University. He was hired as a junior Professor of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1919. He taught classes at the University of Saskatchewan until 1924 when he returned to New Brunswick to practice law. He married Yvonne LeBlanc in Nova Scotia in 1926. He died on March 17, 1932 in Campbellton, New Brunswick.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This fonds consists of bound books of lecture notes written by J.T. Hébert. Some of the books contain lecture notes for classes being taught by Hébert at the University of Saskatchewan. However, many of the books appear to be notes from classes taken by Hébert as a law student at Harvard University and Dalhousie University. In some cases, notes that appear to have been originally taken when he was a student seem to have been further annotated by him years later for use in his own lectures. When a notation at the front of the book indicates that the notes were originally taken as a student at another university, Archives staff have noted this in the file list including the original professor’s name, if noted in the book.
