Atkinson Lecture Series materials

The Atkinson Lecture series , established in 1974, came from a $50,000 grant obtained by Doug MacFarlane, then chairperson of the Journalism Department, from the Atkinson Foundation. The Atkinson Foundation was established to commemorate the late Joseph E. Atkinson, publisher of The Star from 1899-1948. The lecture series was intended to bring journalists to Ryerson to examine the role and relationships of media in today's society. The series, initially held twice a year, had its first lecture December 4, 1974.
Series contains materials created in relation to the lecture series. Included are posters, correspondence, and taped recordings of the lectures.

In 1812, Ryerson was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel of the First Regiment of the Norfolk Militia by Isaac Brock, in anticipation of a threatened American invasion.
