Naam van de archiefvormer
Humfrey Michell, economist, was born in London, England on 21 February 1883 and educated at Queen's College, Oxford, and the University of Manitoba. From 1913-1919 he was Assistant Director of the Canadian Bankers' Association correspondence program at Queen's University. In 1919 he moved to McMaster University where he remained until 1948 as Professor of Political Economy. His major work concerned business and price cycles, stressing a statistical approach to economics. In 1937 he published Outlines of Economic History. After his retirement he moved to Lennoxville, P.Q., where he did some teaching at Bishop's. He died on 5 May 1970.
Bereik en inhoud
The fonds consists of a small amount of correspondence, McMaster University examinations, at least one typescript by Michell, as well as printed articles and news clippings. There is also a copy of a photograph "Louis Riel and His Associates [at] Fort Garry"; the copy was made in April 1914. It is annotated by Michell. The fonds is supplemented by publications which have not been catalogued or listed. They are located separately from the fonds.
Directe bron van verwerving
Fonds was presumably acquired from Professor Michell upon his retirement from McMaster University.
