  1. I just found your blog. also have an interest in social history and have written a book about a one-room school teacher who lived from 1907-2008 and taught for more than 20 years in one-room schools of Ontario. She was also my mother. I agree that history often ignores the social part and that’s what I tried to emphasize in my book — how communities and education changed over the 20th century. My book — Grace: A teacher’s life, one-room schools, and a century of change in Ontario — has been very well received and I have been invited to give more than 50 talks around Ontario. People love to remember how we used to live. Millie

      Thank you for visiting my page, and for taking the time to comment.

      Yes, Canadian history is an endangered species. To paraphrase David Lewis, “It could sue for nonsupport.” That is why it is important that people like you preserve the stories of extraordinary people before they disappear.

      Good luck and good fortune with your book.

      Gerry B.
