    Andrew MacKay was born at Elmfield, Pictou County, Nova Scotia on 13 April 1845, the son of Angus and Helen (Murray) MacKay.

    The contents of the fonds were saved from a fire at Mr. MacKay's house which took place about 1924.

    Scope and content

    Fonds consists of two pieces of wall paper that were used to write out sections of music that could be used to teach singing. They provide examples of how Andrew MacKay taught his students sacred music.
