Ontario Historical Society presents award to Oxford Remembers

The Ontario Historical Society is pleased to present the Dorothy Duncan Public History Award to the collaborative project, Oxford
Remembers Oxford’s Own – led by Patty Phelps and the Annandale National Historic Site. The Dorothy Duncan Award recognizes an outstanding public history project completed or presented in the award year.

The “Oxford Remembers Oxford’s Own” project was a five-year (2014-2018) collaborative effort between eight museums, archives, and community groups, that organized 100 events and special programs to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the First World War.

The Oxford County Archives was a proud participant in Oxford Remembers and contributed with the successful publication of a book on the history of Oxford County's cenotaphs titled: Honouring Oxford: The Cenotaphs and Memorials of the Great War.
