Leddy Library archives help event leader dig deep into local history

Alumna, Sarah Morris, working in the archives.

While many Windsor locals know the names of the city’s streets, few are familiar with the people behind the names. UWindsor alumna Sarah Morris (BA 2012) is determined to shed light on the topic during the 2019 Windsor-Essex Jane’s Walk this weekend.
