Biographical Sketch

Charles Bruce Sissons (1879–1965) was born near Barrie, Ontario and graduated from Victoria University in 1901. After studying at Oxford University, he returned to Victoria in 1909 to teach history, initially as a lecturer, and later becoming an Associate Professor, then Professor Emeritus. He is perhaps best known for his biography of Egerton Ryerson. He also published a history of Victoria University.

Scope and Content

Fonds consists of manuscripts, notes and other material relating to Sissons' biography of Egerton Ryerson [193-], as well as articles [1931-1949], notes regarding Victoria University history [ca. 1950], and reminiscences [ca. 1961].
