Historian in the OC
Posted by Christopher Moore
In the recent announcement of Order of Canada appointments, Margaret MacMillan, already a member, was promoted to Companion (the top flight). Congratulations, Margaret.
It's a bit of a stretch to find other historians this year.
But let's also note Erna Paris, honored for her writing on human rights around the world and in the past. And Kent Roach, legal scholar who has contributed to legal history and biography. And Laura Brandon, art curator at the War Museum. Reaching a bit wider, Noreen Taylor, founder of the Charles Taylor Nonfiction Prize foundation that has recognized a few historians in its time, and Phyllis Bruce, editor and publisher to quite a few historians.
