Bryan Walls credits his training in dentistry at the University of Toronto with giving him the skills and stability to pursue his life’s passion: preserving the history of the Underground Railroad.

Walls, who practised dentistry in Windsor, founded the John Freeman Walls Underground Railroad Museum , named after his great-great-grandfather who fled slavery in North Carolina. The museum is in Emeryville, Ont., just southeast of Windsor, on a farm that had been in his family for generations and served as a terminal on the Underground Railroad.
