G. Raymond Chang Award

Chang Award - Clive and PresidentThe inaugural G. Raymond Chang Outstanding Volunteer Awards Night was held on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at Ryerson University. The award celebrates the exemplary generosity and contribution of alumni and friends to Ryerson University. The awards are named in honour of the late G. Raymond Chang, former chancellor of Ryerson University, for his deep belief in the importance of volunteering.

Since retiring from McGraw-Hill Ryerson in 2011, Clive Powell has been immersed in the Ryerson Press collection, which was acquired by the publisher when it purchased the Ryerson Press in 1970. For more than six years he has been documenting the collection of almost 3,000 book titles and more than 2,000 related archival materials, conducting extensive research, producing a video and writing a blog about various aspects of the collection. His search for an appropriate home for the collection in order to preserve its rich Canadian cultural legacy led to its donation to the Special Collections unit of Ryerson University Library and Archives.

The award was presented by Mohamed Lachemi, President and Vice-Chancellor, Ryerson University.


About The Ryerson Press Archive

My name is Clive Powell. I worked for McGraw-Hill Ryerson for 35 years. Recently I was asked to find a home for 3000 publications that represent the Ryerson Press Archive. I am happy to share my discoveries.
