I was pleased to see that Historian Desmond Morton of McGill is this year's winner of the Pierre Berton Award.
The award is given in recognition of exceptional achievement in popularizing Canadian history.
Dr. Morton is a long-time supporter of the History Society, and a frequent contributor to both Canada's History magazine, and most recently, our best-selling 2009 book, 100 Photos that Changed Canada.
Next week, I'll head to Ottawa with other History Society staff to celebrate the award in person with Dr. Morton, at a special ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa.
