You’ve arrived at the website of Douglas Worts.
Within this site, you will find a range of resources and discussions related to my career in museums, as well as my interests in culture, creativity, culture and sustainability. There is also a link to material on my ancestors who were early industrialists in Toronto – during the early/middle 19th century. If you are interested in the Feb 28 2012 lecture I delivered on “Gooderham & Worts: the family, the business and the community”, click here for a short synopsis and some images.
