Memory and Legacy: the Winnipeg General Strike

J. Nolan Reilly

J. Nolan Reilly is currently a Senior Scholar and Director Emeritus of the Oral History Centre at the University of Winnipeg. Prior to starting at the University of Winnipeg, Dr. Reilly received his B.A. (Hons) and M.A. from the University of Waterloo and his Ph.D. from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Along with his wife Sharon, Dr. Reilly is responsible for creation of the 1919 General Strike Multimedia Education kit. This kit contains a plethora of resources to help Manitoba history teachers teach the Winnipeg General Strike and was made available to every high school in the province. And, as a result of Dr. Reilly’s never-ending devotion to the teaching of the General Strike, funding has now been secured to update the Multimedia Education Kit in the fall of 1919.
On top of securing an update to the Education Kit, Nolan and Sharon, with the help of funding of the Manitoba Federation of Labour, Manitoba Culture and Heritage, and KKP Design and Print, have recently released the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike Driving and Walking Tour: 100th Anniversary Edition. Over the years, Dr. Reilly has taken hundreds of students, professional groups, and community members on the Strike tour.

For over forty years Dr. Reilly has worked extensively with teachers in classrooms and in workshops exploring effective practices in the teaching of historical consciousness in multi-disciplinary approaches to learning. He continues to be fascinated by exploring, with other teachers, innovative methodologies which incorporate multiple primary sources from traditional documents, oral traditions, public history, the built environment, and historical artifacts.
