John Moir's contributions recognized by history society. (PCC news).

Many friends and former students of John Moir joined the Canadian Society of Presbyterian History in honouring him at a dinner and presentation held during the society's annual meeting September 29.

John Moir is well-known as the author of Enduring Witness, the highly acclaimed history of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. According to national church archivist Kim Arnold, his engaging style of writing has made history more readable and more accessible to people who might not normally pick up a history book.

Moir's list of accomplishments is long. He is professor emeritus of the University of Toronto history department, past archivist or the Presbyterian Church, longtime member of the General Assembly Committee on History and past-president of the Canadian Society of Presbyterian History. His academic works in terms of researching, writing and teaching on various aspects of religious history are numerous. He is currently the editor for the Committee on History's second volume of biographies of women in the church, More Gifts and Graces, and is writing a history of the former Synod of Hamilton and London.

Pictured congratulating him are Rev. John Johnston (left), president of the Canadian Society of Presbyterian History, and Michael Miller, the society's secretary.
