Inaugurated in 2016, the Driedger Lecture is delivered annually by a distinguished historian on an important historical topic. This series, along with student scholarships, is sponsored by the Driedger Fund, which was established by the children of Dr. Gerhard and Hilda Driedger to honour their parents' lifelong love of history.
Prof. Timothy Winegard of Colorado Mesa University, will speak on his bestselling book, The Mosquito: A Human History of our Deadliest Predator (Dutton/Penguin Books, 2019). "Driven by surprising insights and fast-paced storytelling, The Mosquito is the extraordinary untold story of the mosquito’s reign through human history and her indelible impact on our modern world order."
