The year 2017 will be the 60th year since the creation of the University of Waterloo in 1957. Accordingly, starting with the spring luncheon, this history will be celebrated through a series of lectures by the UWRA.
The topic for the UWRA Spring Luncheon for 2017 will be Memories of UWaterloo: An Illustrated Lecture and will draw upon some of the more than one thousand images in the Special Collections and Archives. It will also use the extensive collection of Oral History Interviews, some of which were conducted by UWaterloo’s first president, Dr. Gerry Hagey, and many others by UW retirees who took the initiative to create a major collection of Oral History interviews as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations. UWaterloo is fortunate to have a rich store of material and the lecture will encourage members of the UWRA to bring their own ideas forward as part of the 60th anniversary celebration. With assistance from UW Special Collections and Archives.
The Spring Lecture will be presented by UWRA member Ken McLaughlin, Distinguished Professor of History.
