Biographical history

Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, on August 31st, 1939, her affinity with the Eastern Townships brought her to Bishop's ­University in 1956, graduating in 1959 with her BA. Back to get her High School Teaching ­Certificate in 1960, a lifelong athlete, Lu participated in various sports and a number of University Clubs and became a loyal and dedicated fan of the Bishop's Gaiters. In 1967 Lu decided on another path, enrolling in the McGill University Graduate School of Library Sciences and earned an MLS in 1969. For the next 26 years, she was a ­Reference Librarian at the McLennan Reference Library at McGill, active in the AMUL and served as its President. In 1995 she retired to Lennoxville in the Eastern Townships, and in 1997 embarked on "her third career" volunteering as Archivist and past President of the Lennoxville-Ascot Historical & Museum Society at "Uplands", the Georgian-style mansion that houses the museum and archives. Known as "Lu" to family and friends, she was pre-deceased by her parents Hamilton Milford and Margaret (nee Fuller) and siblings Frederick Fuller (Jill), Martha Russell Chamberlain (Ken d.) and John Hamilton Fuller (Sandra).
