May 2021 meeting and AGM – online

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will be on Monday, May 31. It will begin a little later than usual—at 8:00 p.m.—in order to accommodate our members’ Annual General Meeting, which will get underway at 7:00 p.m. Both the AGM and the regular Branch meeting will be entirely online with separate sign-ins. The AGM will be open to members only—all members should have received an AGM package with details. The Branch meeting will be open to all.

William Henry Pearson’s notebooks over the course of six decades—now available online—contain fascinating personal accounts of hundreds of individuals with Toronto connections and represent a significant historical resource. Please join us for Pearson’s Opinions: What one man’s preoccupation with death can tell us about early Toronto.
