WINTER 2005–06 NEWS



Amanda White joined the Russell Centre as a student research assistant in the summer of 2005. She enjoyed the work at the Centre and has continued on a part-time basis this academic year. Amanda has been able to improve her research skills, refining her searches before trips to the Russell Archives or using reference material. She has developed an interest in biography. She will graduate this spring with a degree in Comparative Literature and Japanese. Her next goal will be to get her Masters degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Western Ontario. There she plans on specializing in archives. Amanda has been a joy to have at the Centre: her enthusiasm, originality, and organizational skills are greatly admired. We wish her well in the future.

Andrew Bone gave two talks in the autumn of 2005: on “The Russell–Einstein Manifesto and the Origins of Pugwash” at a forum organized by the Science for Peace and the Canadian Pugwash Group and “Russell’s Dismissal from Trinity College” to a Harry Crowe Foundation forum on “Academic Freedom Post-9/11”, both in Toronto. A summary of both speeches appears in the Centre’s upcoming newsletter which went to the press in February 2006.
