Canadian Public Figures on Tape

In the early 1970s, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) conducted a series of ten interviews with prominent Canadian politicians and released the series under the title Canadian Public Figures on Tape as a resource for high school classrooms. The interviews provide a personal and informal perspective on political life as the subjects discuss their lives, their careers, and views on Canadian national identity with interviewer Richard Alway, then a history graduate student at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Richard Alway reflects on Canadian Public Figures on Tape fifty years later
