Robert Tuck (1927-2015) was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. He graduated from Dalhousie University with an arts degree, then trained for the Anglican priesthood at St Michael's College in Wales before being ordained in 1954. He served at churches in Nova Scotia before working at St. Mary's in Summerside from 1964 to 1975, and was priest in charge of King's County from 1975 through 1993. He was also a Canon of St. Peter's Church in Charlottetown. Tuck was a great-nephew of the 19th century artist Robert Harris and the architect William Critchlow Harris. Tuck wrote several books about his ancestors. In addition, Tuck was an illustrator and editorial cartoonist. Tuck also designed the Anglican churches in Montague and Souris. He received recognition for his historical scholarship with awards from the PEI Museum & Heritage Foundation and the Canadian Historical Association, as well as an honorary doctorate from the University of King's College in Halifax.
