Secrets of the names on the JCR walls

Charles Levi is giving a talk this evening, as part of UC History Week,  about the history of the UC Lit: “Politicians, Lawyers, Defrocked Priests and That Guy Who Shot His Leg Off: Secrets of the names on the JCR walls.”

If you’d like to read more, we have Charles Levi’s book about the UC Lit at Laidlaw Library: Comings and goings : university students in Canadian society, 1854-1973, as well as his PhD dissertation, Where the famous people were? : the origins, activities and future careers of student leaders at University College, Toronto, 1854-1973.

And if you’re interested in the history of UC and U of T, you might also want to read A not unsightly building : University College and its history, as well as the book by last night’s speaker: Martin Friedland’s The University of Toronto : a history (we have both at Laidlaw).
