Jocelyn Motyer Raymond (1930-2007) was an educator and researcher at University of Toronto's Institute for Child Study (ICS). Born in Bermuda, Raymond first came to Canada in 1946 to study at McMaster University. She studied at Ontario College of Education from 1952-1954, then went on to teach at the Institute for Child Study between 1954-1964, working closely with Dr. William E. Blatz, Margaret Fletcher, Mary Northway, Gerry Leroux, and other key scholars in the burgeoning field of child study. During this time, she also wrote a weekly column for The Globe and Mail entitled "Living with Children." Raymond received her M.A. in Education from Dalhousie University, and later taught at the Faculty of Education, Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. There, she helped found the university's Early Childhood Education Department, set up the demonstration school, served on the ICS Archives Committee, and published her monograph The Nursery World of Dr. Blatz in 1991.
