2016 Toronto History Lecture—August 3

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The annual Toronto History Lecture was inspired by former Toronto Branch Chair Paul McGrath, who died suddenly in 2008. Paul was a well-known local and family historian who relished sharing stories of Toronto in years gone by.

Paul McGrath

Paul James McGrath, 1959–2008

This year’s free Lecture will take place on the evening of Wednesday August 3 at the City of Toronto Archives, which has hosted the event since its inception. We are currently inviting proposals from potential speakers for lectures on any aspect of Toronto history.

Do you or does someone you know have a story to tell? Download our full call for details. The deadline for submissions is June 10.

Be sure to mark August 3 on your calendar. Past Toronto History Lecturers—Chris Raible, Janice Nickerson, Guylaine Pétrin, Craig Heron and Jonathan Scotland—have all wowed us with fascinating and passionate presentations.
