Finding the Ambrose Small story @ WEBINAR | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Journalist Katie Daubs will tell us about her intensive research into the mysterious disappearance of the very colourful Toronto theatre mogul Ambrose Small in 1919 for her 2019 book The Missing Millionaire.

“In The Missing Millionaire, Katie Daubs tells the story of the Small mystery, weaving together a gripping narrative with the social and cultural history of a city undergoing immense change… Drawing on extensive research, newly discovered archival material, and her own interviews with the descendants of key figures, Katie Daubs offers a rich portrait of life in an evolving city in the early twentieth century. Delving into a crime story about the power of the elite, she vividly recounts the page-turning tale of a cold case that is truly stranger than fiction.”

Katie Daubs, Toronto, is a feature writer at the Toronto Star, where she has worked since 2009. Before joining the Star, she worked at the Ottawa Citizen. A graduate of Carleton University, Katie won a William Southam Journalism Fellowship in 2016 and has been nominated for three National Newspaper Awards. Born in Forest, Ontario, she lives in Toronto.
