of the '20s and '30s.
Since retiring from a career teaching English, Linda Beck has directed her energies to the study of Broadway musicals from the early Twentieth Century. She began by collecting the songs of Cole Porter and reading everything possible about his life. Her interests soon widened to include other well-known creators of musicals and some of the great performers of the period. And they continue to expand.
Linda has taught courses for Later Life Learning at the University of Toronto and for the Life Institute at Ryerson University, and she has lectured for George Brown College Seniors Association and Lifelong Learning Mississauga. She also does multimedia presentations for retirement homes, synagogues and private groups.
