about Herb Stovel

Arriving back in Ottawa following a distinguished national and international career, Herb Stovel was Associate Professor and coordinator of the Heritage Conservation programme in the School of Canadian Studies at Carleton University from 2004 to 2012. His legacy at Carleton includes: the enthusiasm for and understanding of Canadian and international heritage ideas and conservation practices he instilled in dozens of students in his undergraduate and graduate courses; the development of a collection of key heritage conservation resources at the library; the comprehensive online resource list he developed as a study guide for heritage conservation; his essential support to building new streams in Conservation and Sustainability in the Schools of Architecture and Engineering; the creation of an annual graduate student-run Symposium on Heritage Conservation; the many community-based student projects he helped foster in Ottawa; and his general development of greater connections between heritage and conservation disciplines within the university and outside. He has also left the University the vast archives of his career’s work.

The National Trust for Canada administers the Herb Stovel Scholarship Fund in his honour. The fund supports the research or conference attendance of one or more students or young professionals in heritage conservation each year. More information on the scholarship can be found here.
