CANADA'S History Society has appointed a new editor for its Winnipeg-based national children's history magazine, Kayak.
Nancy Payne officially took over the reins on Monday, said magazine publisher Deborah Morrison.
Payne replaces Jill Foran, who has moved to an editorial post with Reader's Digest in Montreal.
The National History Society also publishes the bi-monthly magazine Canada's History, formerly known as The Beaver.
Kayak appears quarterly. Payne comes to the post after being editor of the Canadian Wildlife Federation's publications Wild and Canadian Wildlife/Biosphère.
She will continue to work out of her home near Peterborough, Ont., Morrison said.
