Ontario Premier William Davis & Sir John A. Macdonald

January 11, 1965

Ontario’s Premier from 1971 until 1985, William Davis also served as a ground-breaking Ontario Minister of Education in the 1960s under Premier John Robarts. In this role Davis led Ontario’s celebrations of Sir John A. Macdonald’s 150th birthday in 1965. Now enjoying an active retirement from political life, Davis has been an enthusiastic supporter of Kingston’s Macdonald bicentennial commemorations.
