M., professor emeritus in history from Wilfrid Laurier University was appointed Member of the Order of Canada by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon, Governor General. He co-founded and is director emeritus of the Laurier Centre for Military and Strategic Disarmament Studies, (now Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada) where he fostered a rich community of scholarship and cemented Canada’s role in the Second World War.
