The magazine Macleans has published an article written by 2012 Trudeau scholar Sara Angel about an important collection of documentary photography given to Ryerson University. The collection, the Black Star Archive, includes pictures of every internationally newsworthy moment from the 1930s to the 1980s. It was donated to Ryerson along with $7 million, which allowed the university to build the Ryerson Image Centre, Canada’s first major institution devoted exclusively to collecting, researching and exhibiting lens-based art. It is the largest gift of cultural property ever made to a Canadian university.

Besides, an article about Sara Angel’s current research and her Trudeau scholarship has been recently published in the UofT Magazine
