வாழ்க்கை வரலாற்று வரலாறு?
David Paul Sinclair was a librarian and researcher. He was born in Toronto, Ontario. He died in Toronto after a street accident in London, England.
Sinclair received an M.A. and a Bachelor of Library Science from the University of Toronto. From 1968 to his death he was employed as a librarian at Victoria University, Toronto, working on manuscripts and the Canadiana collection. He also provided accessioning and cataloguing services to the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, and taught a course in Canadian Fiction in what was then the Victoria College Department of English.
At the time of his death, he was on leave, working on a Ph.D. in Bibliography at the University of London, England, under Arthur Brown. His chosen subject was English-language printing and publishing in the Canada’s in the nineteenth century, with special emphasis on their relationship to the growth of literary activity. His research focused on nineteenth century British and Canadian poetry from which he published articles and reviews. His research interests also included Canadian book history and copyright issues. He edited Nineteenth Century Narrative Poems (1972) for the New Canadian Library. A more detailed biography, with bibliography appears in The New World Journal of Alexander Graham Dunlop, 1845 (1976) which was completed by his colleague, Germaine Warkentin.
Fonds consists of research notes and correspondence relating to Sinclair's publications, including correspondence with Germaine Warkentin regarding a controversy over the reprinting of Nineteenth Century Narrative Poems and research notes on English sources for nineteenth century Canadian book history assembled in preparation for his unwritten doctoral thesis, 1972-74.
