“Boyer’s Modern History of Muskoka” features monthly reports by historian and author J. Patrick Boyer setting current events into their historical perspective, making them more understandable. By drawing on Muskoka’s authentic experience, he connects global events to their impact on local people’s lives, community behaviour, and cultural values.
Who is J. Patrick Boyer?
Our host for this engaging Hunters Bay Radio program is a fifth-generation Muskokan whose homesteading ancestors arrived in the district before Confederation in the 1860s.
Raised and educated in Bracebridge, he engaged fully in sports, camping, and newspaper work. He earned university degrees in economics, politics, law, and history, became partner of a major Toronto law firm, Member of Parliament for a Toronto electoral district, and Parliamentary Secretary for External Affairs in the Government of Canada. Patrick’s career has also taken him through work as university professor, newspaper reporter, and television host.
Author of more than two dozen books, J. Patrick Boyer also writes feature articles and columns have been published nationally and in Muskoka magazines and newspapers. In 2019, Patrick launched an innovative book series on “the modern history of Muskoka” and Hunters Bay Radio is proud to broadcast monthly instalments of his deeply informed reporting on Muskoka’s heritage. In addition to these broadcasts, we also publish the text of Boyer’s Modern History radio programs on our website, too.
