Topic:         A Humorous History of British Columbia’s Highways

Speaker:    Dr. Patricia Roy, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, University of Victoria

With the help of cartoonists and a few photographers, Patricia Roy will show how highways have been important in British Columbia’s political history and how highways have sometimes been sources of amusement.
She taught Canadian history at the University of Victoria for many years.  Most of her research has concerned British Columbia.  Her most recent books are Boundless Optimism: Richard McBride’s British Columbia (2012) and The Collectors: A History of the Royal British Columbia Museum and Archives (2018).
