Alfred Pinsky was born on March 31, 1921 and died on November 21, 1999. He joined Sir George Williams University in 1959 as a part-time lecturer in Fine Arts. In 1960, he became a full-time lecturer, and chair of the newly-created Department of Fine Arts. In 1962 he was appointed assistant professor of Fine Arts. In 1964, he was promoted to associate professor, and, in 1969, to professor.
