Overview

The "masterful oral history" (Globe and Mail) that was praised, condemned, admired, vilified, eagerly devoured and hotly debated. This is the story of UCC - the institution that has educated the sons of the Canadian establishment for almost seven decades. In Old Boys, former students’ recollections are woven together to form a remarkably vivid portrait not merely of a private boys’ school in down town Toronto, but of the evolving society it reflects. Candid and arresting, controversial and revealing, Old Boys is an unforgettable look inside one of Canada’s most prestigious academic institutions.
