History

Millar MacLure was a professor of English at Victoria College, Toronto, for thirty years. Born in 1917 at Albion Cross, Prince Edward Island, he received degrees at Acadia University (Hon. B.A. 1939), Queen's University, Kingston (M.A. 1944), and the University of Toronto (Ph.D. 1949). When his graduate studies in English literature at Johns Hopkins University were interrupted by the war in 1940, he taught at his former high school, Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, during 1941-1943 and 1944-1945. After receiving his doctorate, he served as Professor of English and Chairman of the Department at United College, Winnipeg, 1949-1953. He returned to Toronto to teach at Victoria College until his retirement in 1983. During his distinguished professorate at Victoria and the University of Toronto Graduate Department of English, MacLure served as departmental chairman and edited The Tamarack Review (1956-1960) as well as The University of Toronto Quarterly (1960-1965). His major publications were The Paul's Cross Sermons, 1534-1642 (1958) and George Chapman: A Critical Study (1966). He also edited and co-edited several other important volumes and wrote many essays and reviews. He served as founding president of the Association of Canadian University Teachers of English for 1957-1958, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1973. MacLure died in 1990.
