Author Bio for Bateman, Reginald John Godfrey
Reginald John Godfrey Bateman (1883-1918) was a Canadian educator and soldier. He was hired in 1909 as the first professor of English at the University of Saskatchewan. He was a patriot and a loyal Canadian who enlisted in the army at the outbreak of war in 1914. He experienced trench warfare and for a time commanded an infantry unit. He was killed in action in September 1918 when a shell exploded near him. In 1922, the university published a book containing a series of his lectures and other writings.
Bateman, who was an idealist in many aspects of his life once said: "It is by Art and Art alone that Humanity progresses; progress in Science or in mere knowledge does not necessarily mean progress in any of those things in which Man stands supreme above the rest of creation, those spiritual qualities which raise him to the level of the Divine."
