Just in time for Christmas! Book celebrates work of late Brock cartographer

Want a Christmas present for that history or geography buff who has everything?!

Alun Hughes, a longtime member of Brock’s Department of Geography, had an enormous appetite for local history.

Between 2003 and his untimely death in 2013, the trained cartographer wrote extensively about the geography and history of the Niagara region.

Hoping to honour his passion, Hughes’ former colleagues have come together to release a book of his essays, History Made in Niagara. The book was compiled by Hughes’ former colleagues from the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies, Professors Mike Ripmeester and David Butz and retired cartographer Loris Gasparotto.


History Made in Niagara can be purchased at the launch for $35 (cash only) through the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies
