Queen’s University Archives is pleased to announce that Dr. Cheryl McWatters will be presenting the 30th Annual Queen’s University Archives Lecture, entitled, “The news of our failure is almost in every child’s mouth: Accounts, tales, and travels through the archives.”

This year’s lecture will take place:

When:  Wednesday, November 7, 2012, 7:00 p.m.

Where:  Room 202, Robert Sutherland Hall (formerly known as the Policy Studies Building), located on Union Street, Kingston, ON.

Parking is available, above ground, off of Union Street, next to the playing field.

Dr. McWatters, who is currently the Father Edgar Thivierge Chair in Business History (with cross appointment with the Department of History), at the University of Ottawa, will be basing her lecture largely on her doctoral research, which was carried out in the Reading Room of Queen’s University Archives, and which involved the records of the Calvin Company, located on Garden Island though the 19th and early 20th centuries. 

All are welcome, and refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the Lecture.
