Notice biographique

Wynne Francis was born on September 2, 1918 and died on August 2, 2000 in Montreal, QC at age 81. Francis obtained her BA in English from Sir George Williams University in 1942 and an MA in English from McGill University in 1963 with a specialization in Canadian Literature. She began her career in 1942 teaching at Sir George Williams University (SGW) in the English and Humanities department. In 1967 she became a full professor in the department of English at SGW and continued teaching after the merger in 1974 between Sir George Williams University and Loyola College at Concordia University until her retirement in 1991.

Francis’ legacy is maintained and her name honoured with the annual Wynne Francis Award for Graduate Study in Canadian Poetry.
