C. Anne Crocker
C. Anne Crocker began her career at UNB in 1976 as the first full-time professional librarian in the Law Library and quickly developed UNB's collection of legal materials into a modern and professional academic library, including supervising the design and construction of the 1984 addition to the law library. She was appointed the first vice-chair of the New Brunswick Advisory Council on the Status of Women (1978-1983), and in 1997 the UNB alumna received the country's highest civilian honour, the Order of Canada. Crocker was inducted into the Order for her role in the formation of the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Foundation and the Centre for Family Violence Research, having served as the Foundation's Vice-President, President, and Endowment Campaign Vice-Chair. She is also a lifetime member of the Centre's Board of Directors. Crocker was the founding President of Women in Transition House, Inc., New Brunswick's first shelter for abused women and their children, and has served as a telephone volunteer and trainer for CHIMO (a telephone crisis response centre), as well as President of its Management Committee. She received the Queen's Jubilee Medal in 2003. Crocker retired in 2006, and on October 18, 2007, she was named Librarian Emerita at Convocation.
