Biographical history

H. M. Peter Westin is the second born son of the Reverend Canon H. M. D. Westin, who served as Rector of St. Peter's Cathedral from 1974-1990, and his wife Margaret. Peter completed high school in Amherst, Nova Scotia and received a B.A. in history and B. Ed degree from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. He later earned an M.A. in history and an M.Ed degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and worked as a school teacher for many years, including in Manitoba and Zimbabwe.

Peter Westin is the author of An Act of Faith: The First Fifty Years of St. Peter's Cathedral (Charlottetown: St. Peter Publications, 1994). Westin and St. Peter's Cathedral received federal funding to support the research and writing of this book in 1984 and again in 1985.

Custodial history

The Peter Westin Archives were found among the St. Peter's cathedral Church archives, which were relocated from the church bell tower to the church basement and then into a purpose-built archival room. The records had been stored in boxes and bags at one point and original order was lost.

Scope and content

The archives consist of draft manuscripts of books and chapters written by Peter Westin about the history of St. Peter's Cathedral. The documents include manuscripts of: "The Prayers of the People: The Canon Malone Years, 1921-1952"; "The Outbreak of War" (identified as Chapter XI of a manuscript); "A Footsoldier for Christ: The Canon Westin Years"; and "Anglicanism in Transition: The Cathedral Years: 1974-1990".
