Plan now to attend the UWRA Fall Luncheon and to hear Susan Mavor, who retired last year as head of the Special Collections department in the Porter Library, speak on the history of Westmount neighbourhood in Kitchener-Waterloo as well as the founding of the local rubber industry.
Both the neighbourhood and the industry were founded over 100 years ago, in 1912-- a momentous year in Kitchener’s history. Susan will highlight the archival resources in the Library’s Doris Lewis Rare Book Room which were the basis –and the inspiration -- for her publication Westmount The Tie that Binds the Twin Cities : An Illustrated History of Westmount’s 100 Years.
