James T Angus 1928-2010 RIP

Once I needed to know something about a 19th century timber operation in Ontario called the Georgian Bay Lumber Company.  To my surprise, I found there was actually a book about it: A Deo Victoria, a kind of local history/business history/biography by James T. Angus, longtime education prof at Lakehead University and loyal son of the Severn River corner of Georgian Bay.  I forget why the study of a local timber enterprise was entitled "Victory from God," but it was a useful book to me at the time.

Angus, who wrote lots of other Ontario histories, died recently at 82, and The Globe and Mail gave him a pretty substantial obit.
