Our very own Susie Whaley designed and sculpted a medal for the Toronto Lawyers Association Honsberger Award. Susie’s late husband Bruce Whaley was John D. Honsberger’s nephew.
The Honsberger Award is named in honour of John D. Honsberger, President of the Toronto Lawyers Association in 1967-68 and historian of the association’s first 100 years. Through his extensive legal scholarship and contributions to the Toronto legal community, Mr. Honsberger exemplifies the three pillars of the TLA: Information, Education and Advocacy. Among the many honours he has received in over 60 years at the Bar, are the Law Society Medal and the TLA Award of Distinction. In fact, he was the first recipient of both awards.
