U of T Alumnus Relaunches New College Lecture Series

When Carl Sagan gave the inaugural lecture for the Jacob Bronowski Memorial Lecture Series at New College in 1975, a first-year science student named Jaymie Matthews sat quietly in the audience with rapt attention.

Matthews – now an Officer of the Order of Canada and former Mission Scientist for the Canadian Space Agency – returned to his alma mater to re-launch the series as a hallmark event of New College’s 50th Anniversary celebrations.
