John Kenneth Galbraith Library

Proudly named after John Kenneth Galbraith who was born in 1908 in Iona Station and served as economic adviser to Presidents Roosevelt, Kennedy and Johnson. Under President Roosevelt, he organized and administered the system of wartime price controls. John Galbraith was a former professor, close friend and early supporter of President Kennedy. During his position as adviser to President Johnson, he helped refine the Great Society program.  John Galbraith helped shape the study of liberal American economics in the twentieth century.

John Galbratih wrote dozens of books, and although most of them centred around the Economy, he also wrote fiction.  He wrote a book "The Scotch" about growing up Scottish in Southern Ontario which represents a journey into a culture many of us can now enjoy.
