The North Shore Historical Assembly, which the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society hosted two years ago, was so well recieved that we have decided to stage a similar event this year, with a focus on Northwestern Ontario's history.
Several of the region's leading historians working in a variety of areas have been invited to give short vignettes of their current work. For a complete list of speakers, please visit www.thunderbaymuseum.com
The conference will also feature the launching of alumna and Department of History Alumni Award winner Elinor Barr's latest book Swedes in Canada: Invisible Migrants published by the University of Toronto Press.
Admission to the conference is free as part of 2015 Culture Days. Both events have been sponsored by the Department of History, Lakehead Social History Institute, and the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society.
