Canadian Baptist Historical Society Meeting – 2010

Canadian Baptist Historical Society Annual Meeting

Saturday March 6, 2010


McMaster Divinity College
1280 Main Street West
Hamilton, ON L8S4K1

The Canadian Baptist Historical Society (CBHS) traces its origins back to the nineteenth century when Baptists passionate about their heritage began a process of preserving critical documents and studying the Baptist presence in Ontario and Quebec. Its primary focus is on the history of all Baptists in the Canadian context, but the study of Baptists around the globe is also a part of its mandate. Scholars, pastors, students and those interested in Baptist history are all warmly invited to attend meetings of the society. The CBHS is always interested in paper proposals for its meetings, and if you have a proposal for next year’s meeting please send it to Gord Heath.

The CBHS has also recently started to publish a series of books on Baptist history. Volume one will be Baptists and Public Life in Canada (anticipated publication in 2010). Two other volumes are anticipated in 2011 and 2012.

Future locations will be Tyndale Seminary (2011), Toronto Baptist Seminary (2012) and Heritage Seminary (2013).

    I am searching family genealogy and would like to learn more about Rev. Ebenezer Dadson (1845-1900) who was conferred the third honourary dd in 1895 by McMaster University. I have information about his library which apparently noone has knowledge. Five years ago it was in his former home on Cranberry Lane, Lake Rosseau, Muskoka. I gave this information to the University of Toronto who apparently did not have the manpower to pursue. Perhaps your organization could follow through on this. If so I would be pleased to provide you with information I have. Thank you
