Description

SHE WROUGHT HER PEOPLE LASTING GOOD

QUEEN VICTORIA IN THE HEARTS AND SCHOOLS OF ONTARIO 1819-1901

To mark the 200 th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth, James A.S. Thompson presents an
illustrated talk on this fascinating and complex monarch whose legacy and impact on the Royal
Family, the entertainment industry, and Canada are still felt today. In this lively session, James
reveals Queen Victoria beyond the phrase “We are not amused”. He describes her relationship
with Canada, explains how her picture came to be in classrooms across Canada, and concludes
with why at the time of the queen’s death, people said of Victoria: “she wrought her people
lasting good”.


James A.S. Thompson is a later life learning instructor at several continuing studies schools in
Toronto. He is a former member of the Spadina Museum/ Colborne Lodge/Mackenzie House
advisory board appointed by the City of Toronto. In 2000 he re-published Spadina: A Story of
Old Toronto written by his father Austin S. Thompson.
