TORONTO, ON – Massey College at the University of Toronto is bringing together a panel of renowned Canadian historian and politicians, including Dr. Margaret MacMillan, the Honourable Bill Graham and Mr. John Sewell. Entitled “Massey Talks,” this monthly series at Massey College aims to showcase the lives and works of its Quadranglers and Senior Fellows who have made meaningful contributions to the Canadian society. Previous speakers have included Dr. John Polyani, President David Naylor, Mr. R.H. Thomson, Provost Andy Orchard, Mr. Mark Starowicz, Dean Mayo Moran, Mr. Michael Valpy and Mr. Charles Pachter, to name only a few. Massey Talks was launched in the fall of 2010 by Massey’s Junior Fellows Tina Park, Rob Fraser and Julie Wilson who felt compelled to share the interesting lives of Massey’s Senior Fellows and Quadranglers with the wider community, both at the University of Toronto and the Canadian society at large.
This April 11th session will start at 7:30pm at the Upper Library of Massey College and will be the final session of the 2011-2012 school year.
