5th Annual Geraldine Grace and Maurice Alvin McWatters Visiting Fellowship
We are very pleased to announce that the recipient of the 5th Annual Geraldine Grace and Maurice Alvin McWatters Visiting Fellowship at Queen’s University Archives for 2016-2017 is Dr. Ruth Bradley-St-Cyr from the University of Ottawa, located in Ottawa, Ontario. Dr. Bradley-St-Cyr will be spending a month in our Reading Room researching the cultural policy implications of the sale of The Ryerson Press. The Press was sold in 1970 to the American publisher McGraw-Hill, which resulted in the establishment of the Ontario Royal Commission on Book Publishing in 1971, and reported the following year. The main focus of her research will centre on the Lorne and Edith Pierce Collection.
Queen’s University Archives wishes to thank Dr. Cheryl McWatters and her husband, John MacDiarmid, whose generous endowment has made this Visiting Fellowship a reality.
