Biographical history

Professor Muriel Armstrong, after pursuing undergraduate degrees in Arts (1943) and in Education (1947) from the University of Alberta, obtained an M. Sc. degree in Economics from McGill University in 1954. Professor Muriel Armstrong joined Sir George Williams University in 1957 as a part-time lecturer in Economics. She was then hired full-time as an Assistant Professor in 1961. She became Associate Professor and then Professor in 1965 and 1969 respectively. At the beginning of 1969, she was part of an ad hoc discussion group of students and faculty on the events that were happening at Sir George Williams University which led to the Computer Centre Incident. Along with their discussions, the group published five issues of a small newspaper called “Statement”. Apart from teaching, Professor Armstrong was also active in numerous administrative capacities, such as Chair of the Department of Economics several times and Associate Dean in the Faculty of Arts, from 1972 to 1976. Professor Armstrong’s academic research focus was the Canadian economy, she published a book in 1970 entitled “The Canadian Economy and its Problems” (Toronto: Prentice Hall) which was re-edited various times. Professor Armstrong retired from Concordia University in 1991.
