    Unpaginated. 29 cm. B&w photo of Bertie. Green duotang folder has soiling and some rust to rivets. Some damp stains to paper within. University of Toronto Professor Wilkinson broadcasted over CFRB, Toronto on Sunday afternoons. The 25 talks actually consist of biographies of great figures of British and French, not Canadian, history, including: Alfred the Great, William the Conqueror, Magna Carta, St. Louis, Simon de Montfort, Wat Tyler, John Wyclif, Joan of Arc, Henry VIII, John Calvin, Sir Francis Drake, Elizabeth I, Charles I, Cardinal Richelieu, Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Louis XIV, Rousseau, Edmund Burke, Lafayette. Wilkinson endeavoured to show how these historical figures contributed to British and French, and therefore indirectly, to Canadian civilization.
