New Book on the History of Yorkville features interview with Cliff Collier

Following the memorial service at the archives for Clifford Collier March 19, 2011 there is news of his legacy already coming back to us.
Making the Scene: Yorkville and Hip Toronto in the 1960s will be published in late April by the University of Toronto.
"One chapter in the book relies heavily on Clifford Collier's experiences and recollections.  His contributions to my research were indispensible" wrote author Stuart Henderson, in an email to the Archives.
"On a personal note, I was so sorry to hear of Mr Collier's recent death. He was among the loveliest men I have ever had the chance to meet. I wish he could have seen the book that he so enriched."

We couldn't agree wit Stuart more! and it is so nice to see that while we are all feeling the loss of Clifford we are also already able to see the impact that he made.

A public book launch will be held at the Gladstone Hotel on May 3rd at 7:30pm.
