Author Bio for Fox, William Sherwood

William Sherwood Fox (1878-1967) was a Canadian historian. He was born in New York state while his father, a Baptist minister attended seminary school in Rochester. The family returned to Canada and young William attended schools in Toronto and Hamilton. He became a teacher and worked in Manitoba and in Maryland at John Hopkins University. He ended up as a professor of classics at the University of Western Ontario. In 1927 he became president of the university, a position he held for the next twenty years. During his tenure he wrote several books. His best known work is perhaps The Bruce Beckons: the story of Lake Huron's great peninsula. The book has been credited with the establishment of the Bruce Trail, which now runs from Niagara Falls to Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
