A new Curator has joined the Billy Bishop Home: Museum, Archive and National Historic Site.

Emily Jolliffe started work at the museum on July 2, 2018. Although Ms. Jolliffe was raised in Calgary, Alberta, her family originally hails from Rockwood and Chesley with roots that go back as far as 1830.

She is passionate about Canadian history and graduated from the University of Toronto with a double major in History and Classical Studies. She also studied law at Aberystwyth University in Wales when she discovered "that I enjoyed the study of legal history much more than the practice of law itself."

That led her to pursue a Masters in Museum Studies from Aberdeen University in Scotland "where I could easily relate to the huge influence Scottish culture has had on Ontario and the rest of Canada."

Ms. Jolliffe says she feels like she has "come home to my own history at the beautiful Bishop House and am so excited to be a part of the team and community here."

Ms. Jolliffe replaces Mindy Gill-Johnson, who resigned to take the position of Education Administrator with Saugeen First Nation.
