Last winter, one of York's recent PhD graduates, Sharon Wall, published a book entitled The Nurture of Nature: Childhood, Antimodernism, and Ontario Summer Camps, 1920-55 (UBC Press)
In the spring, it won the Canadian Historical Association's Clio Prize for Western Canadian History, and now the Champlain Society has just awarded it the Floyd S. Chalmers Award in Ontario History.
The award will be presented to her in Toronto at the Society's AGM on Saturday 23 October, when she will also deliver a lecture. Anyone interested in attending should show up at 2 p.m. at the City of Toronto Archives, 55 Spadina Rd.
Many congratulations, Sharon!
