Clarke, Katherine (1940-)


Katherine May Clarke (née McLay) was born in 1940 in Clinton, Ont. She graduated in 1963 with an Honours BA from Trinity College, University of Toronto, in Art & Archaeology. After graduation, she rented a room in Peace House on the University of Toronto campus, operated by the CUCND (the Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament).

After a few months, she found herself invited to become the secretary at the CCND (Canadian Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament). She worked on behalf of the CCND between 1963 and 1965. In the summer of 1964, she joined a student delegation to Cuba during the 5th year of the Cuban revolution. In 1966 she worked for the Unitarian Service in Ottawa, in 1966-67 for CJOH-TV in Ottawa, and between 1968 and 1979 for the Royal Ontario Museum. She is married to Tom Clarke, and they have two children. Now retired, she resides in North Toronto.

Geschiedenis beheer

Bereik en inhoud

Katherine Clarke has dubbed her archives “The Peace House Papers”. Digital copies of the originals and documents from 2009-10 have been placed by her into three folders: book one, “Finding Causes”, consisting of biographical information and letters to her parents between September 1963 and June 1964; book two, “Touring Cuba with 45 Canadians in the summer of 1964 … In the 5th year of La Revolución Cubana”, consisting of photographs of her time in Cuba (including photos of Fidel Castro speaking to a large crowd and playing baseball), photographs of “Harry” and other soldiers (a soldier in Castro’s army, pre-1959, i.e. before the revolution photographs), and her account (entitled “Sugar Daddy”); book three, letters to her parents between September 1964 and March 1965. Originals of most of these materials are also extant in the Clarke fonds.
