Name of creator
William Roger Graham was born in Montreal on 10 March 1919. He received his elementary and secondary education at schools run by the University of Chicago where his father, Wm C. Graham, was Professor of Old Testament Language and Literature. The senior Graham brought his family to Winnipeg in 1938 when he was appointed Principal of United College. W.R. Graham completed a B.A. at the University of Manitoba in 1941, his MA. at the University of Toronto in 1945 and was granted a Ph.D. from Toronto in 1950. After some part-time teaching at Toronto, he was appointed an Instructor at Regina College in 1947. He became Assistant Professor in 1948 and Associate Professor in 1955. He took up an appointment at the University of Saskatchewan in 1957 and was promoted to Full Professor in 1963. Professor Graham went on to Queen's University in 1968 where he was the Douglas Professor of Canadian History. He also served a three year term as Department Chairman starting in 1973. Dr. Graham retired and was appointed Professor Emeritus in the Queen's Department of History before his death on 7 November 1989. W.R. Graham is probably best known for his three volume biography of Arthur Meighen.
