Biographical history

Margaret Beatrice Leitch (née Cartwright) (d. 1979) was chair of the York University Theatre Committee in 1966 when a Faculty of Fine Arts was proposed for York University. She later entered the faculty as an undergraduate student and in 1976 was commissioned to prepare a 'history' of the faculty for its tenth anniversary. Leitch was the wife of John D. Leitch, a member of the Board of Governors at the time.
