Author Bio for Skelton, Oscar Douglas

Author Image

Oscar Douglas Skelton (1878-1941) was a Canadian economist and civil servant. Born in Orangeville, Ontario, and educated at Queen's University, he was awarded his PhD in political economy at the University of Chicago. Due to his extensive academic credentials he was made Dean of Arts at Queen's, a post which he held until 1925. Skelton was a prolific author including biographies of Sir Alexander Tilloch Galt and Sir Wilfrid Laurier. In 1925, Skelton accepted Prime Minister Mackenzie King's offer to succeed Sir Joseph Pope as Under Secretary of State for External Affairs. He was the principal adviser to the PM and was nicknamed the "deputy prime minister". After his death in 1941, he was described by one Canadian historian as the most powerful civil servant in Canadian history. (Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada)

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.
