(December 27, 2018) Dundurn Press is thrilled to congratulate our founder and publisher John Kirk Howard on being named a member of the Order of Canada.

Howard founded Dundurn Press in 1972 in order to promote “Canadian authors telling Canadian stories” — a commitment that the company has maintained in its over 45-year history and during its expansion from a small non-fiction press to one of Canada’s largest independent publishers. 

We are thrilled to announce that The Order of Canada has appointed two of our authors, Ken Armson and Mark Cullen into its ranks. 

Ken Armson, Officer, is the author of The Legacy of John Waldie and Sons. Ken Armson is a professional forester who taught and conducted research in forestry at the University of Toronto for 26 years. He has a special interest in forest history and retired from the role of Ontario's Provincial Forester in 1989. He is also the author of Ontario Forests: A Historical Perspective, published in 2001.
