In 2013, the Oshawa Museum received an amazing donation, hundreds of papers relating to Elder Thomas Henry, whose house makes up one third of the Oshawa Museum. The letters in this collection provide valuable insight into the Henry Family and the world around them. Archivist Jennifer Weymark will share memorable stories, all of which culminated in the book To Cast a Reflection: The Henry Family in Their Own Words.
