A Director Remembers: Highs and Lows


  • 1982 - 2000
  • The Queen is signing a book while onlookers stand behind her

Jim Cruise tells about some ups and downs. The Queen's visit was a peak experience. In the Georgian Canada exhibition, which artifact did she like the best?


Comment by Ron Thorpe

Jim taught me botany at UofT and was my Masters supervisor. I visited him in his ROM office while Director. A great memory to hear his voice and recollections during his tenure at theROM. A fine gentleman and consummate botanist that had time and patience for students. Thanks for the memory. RT
