Canada’s Beaver Magazine Changes Name After 90 Years


The Beaver was founded in 1920 as a publication of the Hudson’s Bay Company, then a fur trader and now a department store chain. It has long since become a broader magazine about Canadian history and will change its name to Canada’s History with its April issue, editor-in-chief Mark Reid said on Tuesday. When The Beaver started publication, the name evoked only Canada’s thriving fur industry.” [Reuters]
