History of Roy McMurtry

Went down last night to Osgoode Hall in Toronto to eat beef tenderloin in honour of Roy McMurtry, who was being recognized for his role in founding the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History. Mary Stokes has the deets here, but worth repeating that the hundred books in legal history the society has published since the late 1970s have transformed the field and provided a vital publishing venue for lots of historians.

And his memoirs (with Rosemary Shipton) are a terrific read, on legal history and much else.
