Author Bio for Pope, Sir Joseph

Sir Joseph Pope (1854-1926) was a Canadian civil servant and was the private secretary to Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first prime minister. He was born in Charlottetown, P.E.I., the son of William Henry Pope, one of the Fathers of Confederation. He moved to Ottawa and was appointed private secretary to Macdonald from 1882-1891. He was appointed as his literary executor. In 1896 he was appointed under-secretary of state for Canada and served in the role for 30 years, completing several important ambassadorial roles for the government. He wrote several books on Canadian history including a biography of Sir John A. Macdonald which we host here at Faded Page. (Macmillan Dictionary of Canadian Biography)

Charles William Jefferys (August 25, 1869—October 8, 1951) was a Canadian painter, illustrator, author, and teacher best known as a historical illustrator.

Born in Rochester, England, Jefferys arrived in Toronto, Ontario (after living in Philadelphia and Hamilton, Ontario) with his family around 1880. After attending school, he apprenticed with the york, Lithography Company from 1885 to 1890. From 1889 to 1892 he worked for the Toronto Globe as an illustrator and artist. From 1893 to 1901, he worked for the New York Herald. Returning to Toronto, he became a magazine and book illustrator. Along with Ivor Lewis and other artists, Jefferys co-founded the Graphic Arts Club (later named the Canadian Society of Graphic Art), which by the 1940s became the primary artists' group in Canada. As well, from 1912 to 1939 he taught painting and drawing in the Department of Architecture at the University of Toronto.--Wikipedia.
