Capital Lives

The speaker at the OGS Ottawa Branch monthly meeting at 7:30 pm on Tuesday 21 March is Valerie Knowles, the author of "Capital Lives."

She will describe some notable figures from the past who have helped to shape Ottawa, individuals such as Dr. Hamnett Hill, Lillian Freiman, Arthur Percy Sherwood, John Rudolphus Booth, Sir Richard William Scott, G. Cecil Morrison and Cairine Wilson. In addition to providing short profiles of these figures, she will describe the times in which they lived and provides colourful anecdotal material.

As usual, the meeting is in room 156 at Library and Archives Canada.
