Stratford’s Jim Anderson- Artist, Archivist, Advocate

Jim Anderson was an outspoken, and at times controversial, supporter of preserving Stratford and Perth County’s heritage and culture. This new exhibit explores his roots as an artist, his dedication towards local history as an archivist and his passion for preservation as a heritage advocate. Infamous for his hunger strike atop the Perth County Courthouse, in protest of a pending dissolution of the historical board, Anderson was instrumental in the founding of Heritage Stratford— established specifically to preserve Stratford’s significant architecture, such as City Hall and the Gordon Block.
