Dr. Joe Schwarcz “Science in the Victorian Era” - March 7, 2017 - 1:00 p.m.


Dr. Schwarcz will be giving a talk about science in the Victorian Era.  The Victorian era (1837-1901) was rich in scientific discoveries ranging from John Snow’s linking cholera with contaminated water and Edison’s invention of the phonograph to vulcanized rubber and Perkin’s discovery of synthetic dyes.

Dr. Joe’s popularity as a prolific author and entertaining public speaker, coupled with his passion for understanding the world and dedication to helping society (indeed even his love of magic!) cannot help but remind us of Charles Dickens!!

Hope you will be able to attend what will surely be a highly entertaining and informative meeting!

Please note the venue has been changed to the Prud'homme Room at Victoria Hall, immediately adjacent to the Westmount Public Library (west side).
