Explore the development of Marshall McLuhan’s theories in the context of his academic and personal life at the University of St. Michael’s College.

The exhibition will feature items drawn from the Special Collections and holdings at St. Michael’s, including material from the Sheila and Wilfred Watson archives, Donald Theall papers and Marshall McLuhan collection.
