Ronald Gilmore Everson was born on 18 November 1903 in Oshawa, Ontario to Thomas Henry Everson and Mary Elizabeth Farewell. He was educated at the University of Toronto (B.A. 1927) and Upper Canada Law School (LL.B. 1930). During his university years he was editor of the literary publication Acta Victoriana. After graduation from University (he never practiced law) he married Lorna Jean Austin (15 April 1931) and moved to a cabin in the bush near Huntsville, Ontario for five years. During this time he wrote numerous short stories and poetry but found it was not enough to pay all the bills. In 1936 he joined a public relations firm, called Johnston, Everson & Charlesworth Ltd., in Montreal and later became President (1953-1969) and Chairman of Communications (1964-1969). He started to pursue poetry more seriously in 1957 with the publication of his first book of poetry Three Dozen Poems. He authored more than a dozen books and pamphlets of poetry and was published in numerous anthologies and magazines. A number of his poems were also translated into several languages. He was a founding member of Delta and The League of Canadian Poets. Everson spent most of his life in Montreal. He moved to Burlington shortly before he passed away on 16 February 1992.
