Hide Profile

Born in London, England, Roy Daniells emigrated to Victoria, B.C. with his family in 1910. He received a B.A. from University of British Columbia (1930) before continuing his graduate education in English at the University of Toronto (M.A., 1931 and Ph.D., 1936). After serving as head of the Department of English at the University of Manitoba, Daniells came to UBC in 1946. He became head of the department following the retirement of G.G. Sedgewick in 1948 and continued in this position until 1965. At that time, he was named the first University Professor of English Language and Literature. Daniells authored two volumes of poetry and wrote extensively on Canadian literature. He is best known for his studies of seventeenth century English literature, particularly the work of John Milton.
