This month at Canada's History: Insulin and more

For the cover story of the February-March Canada's History (where I am a contributing editor)Toronto journalist John Lorinc tells the story of the discovery in Toronto, a century ago, of insulin. 

Tim Cook and Brendan McShane contribute articles on the origins of the Cold War and its Canadian consequences. (McShane is a recent Nobleman Scholar -- a notable initiative that enables public history grads from Western University to do an six-month paid internship with Canada's History. It honours Bill Nobleman, longtime History foundation supporter and governor.)  

Ashley Hendrickson and Lauren Luchenski (of the public history firm Know History) write about the heritage of the downtown Toronto neighbourhood called The Ward.  Kerry Banks profiles Tommy Burns, 19th century Canadian world heavyweight boxing champion, KO'd by racism.  And more, including a review by Jean Teillet of Max Hamon's Riel biography The Audacity of His Enterprise, recently noted here.  She recommends it.
