Biographical history

Dr. Gerald Marquis Craig (1916 -1988) was a Professor in UofT’s Department of History.

He was born in Brighton, Ontario and later attended the UofT as a student. Following his graduation in 1939, he went on to pursue post-graduate studies at Brown University and, later, at the University of Minnesota (PhD, 1947). From 1943 to 1946, Craig also served in the RCAF as a navigator and flying officer.
