Biographical history

Dr. Helen Evans Reid, former Head of the Medical Publications Department of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, is the author of All Silent, All Damned : The Search for Issac Barr (Toronto: Ryerson Press, 1969). Reid spent six years and travelled to various countries to carry out her research on Isaac Montgomery Barr. Barr, an Anglican Minister, organized a colony of middle class British immigrants to settle in the Lloydminster area.
