University of Toronto Press extends its condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Robert Craig Brown, notable historian and UTP author. We had the honour of working with Dr. Brown on more than one occasion, and most recently in 2013 when we published his book Arts and Science at Toronto: A History, 1827-1990. Dr. Brown passed on September 22, 2016.
