History teaches the significance of community during a crisis

When Leddy Library’s archivist Sarah Glassford opened her mail last week, she found copies of her new book on Canadian women’s Second World War experiences, aptly titled Making the Best of It. Flipping through the pages she couldn’t help but notice parallels between wartime and the current COVID-19 pandemic — especially the significance of community to both.


Leddy Library archives help event leader dig deep into local history

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.

Inspired by the late urban activist and writer, Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walk is a free, citizen-led, annual event that encourages residents to discover and connect with their communities.
