2012 Talman Lecture A Success

2012 Talman SpeakerThe 2012 Talman Lecture was presented on Thursday, March 29, 2012. Dr. Cecilia Morgan from the University of Toronto was this year's distinguished speaker. She presented "Among the Six Nations": Celia B File and the Politics of Writing Memory, HIstory and Home in Southern Ontario, 1920s-1960s. The talk was very informative and enjoyed by all.

The J.J. Talman Lecture Series focuses on Ontario history, Ontario regional collections and innovative uses thereof, or previously unstudied aspects of Canadian history. Reflecting the breadth of Dr. Talman’s career at Western, as a respected historian and Chief Librarian, the lectures are organized annually by a joint committee comprised of representatives from the Department of History and Western Libraries.

The J.J. Talman Lecture Series was envisioned and is funded by Raj Jain, Librarian Emerita, and her brother, Dr. Sushil Jain, in gratitude for Dr. Talman’s many personal kindnesses, and to recognize his substantial contribution to Western.
