Title
‘An educator of modern views’: The (Auto)biography of Margaret Ross, 1862-1943
Abstract
The Eastern Townships-born Margaret Maria Ross began her teaching career in the junior department of the Montreal High School for Boys in 1891. In 1893 she became First Lady Assistant in charge of the junior school. In 1908 she transferred to the Commercial and Technical High School to work as a French language specialist, and in 1911 she began to train French language teachers during McGill’s summer session. In 1912, she moved to Vancouver where she became head of Braemar, a private school for girls. In June 1923, Ross published an article on “Lewis Settlers of the Eastern Townships” in the Canadian Magazine, the beginning of a budding literary career. Ross eventually returned to the Eastern Townships where she died in 1943. This article includes an autobiographical essay Ross wrote in 1925.
