The Theatre Museum and Herbert Whittaker Collection will soon have a home.

The unique Canadian Westinghouse Building, built in 1927, will be part of a new condo development on King Street West at John.  TORONTO’s Theatre Museum, wandering in the wilderness for decades, has been assured a large space in the project.  The core of the collection was donated by HERBERT WHITTAKER (1910-2006), Montreal-born designer, director, Member of the Order of Canada, and Drama Critic Emeritus for the Globe and Mail.

After retiring from his column in 1975, Mr. Whittaker continued writing for the Globe from London and New York.  He also sent dispatches from Russia, Greece, France, China and Australia.
