The Killam Memorial Library officially opened in March 1971. On the 50th anniversary of this landmark building’s opening, we’ll be exploring the origins of the Killam Library, why it looks the way it does, and what other buildings on campus and across Canada are its “siblings”.
Professor Christine Macy, former Dean of the Faculty of Architecture & Planning, will take us on an illustrated tour of the Killam Library, interpreting it through the lens of post-WWII reconstruction in Europe and nation-building in Canada.
