Calling Toronto historians…

Toronto Branch has issued a call for proposals for the 2019 Toronto History Lecture, to be held on Wednesday, August 7, at the City of Toronto Archives.

The annual THL is free to attend and all are welcome. It was inaugurated in 2011 in memory of well-known local and family historian, and former Branch Chair, Paul McGrath, who had a passion for telling people about Toronto and its past. Previous lecturers include: Chris Raible, Janice Nickerson, Guylaine Pétrin, Craig Heron, Jonathan Scotland, Arlene Chan, Joyce Munro, Gregory Klages, Bill Gladstone and Ted Glenn.

We are currently seeking proposals for an interesting, innovative and well-presented lecture on any aspect of Toronto history. The deadline for submissions is May 17. Visit the THL page to find out more about this popular event and to download this year’s Call for Lecture Proposals.
