Historia biográfica

Stephen John Harris (1948- ) is Chief Historian at the Directorate of History and Heritage. Raised in Toronto and Burlington, he attended McMaster University, Hamilton, where he received a B.A. (English and History) in 1969, and a M.A. (History) in 1970. In September 1970 he accepted a position with the Canadian Forces College Extension School, located at Armour Heights, as an instructor in military history, a position he held until 1974. That year he began doctoral studies at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, and finished his Ph.D. in 1979. His thesis, "Canadian Brass: The Making of a Professional Army, 1860-1939", was published by the University of Toronto Press in 1988. Dr. Harris joined the Directorate of History in 1979, and from 1980 until 1994 was part of a team writing the Official History of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). He contributed two chapters to Volume II, and was responsible for the ten chapters dealing with the strategic bombing offensive in Volume III. With Brereton Greenshous, he wrote a history of the battle of Vimy Ridge commemorating its 75th anniversary. He has also contributed articles on army and air force history to a number of books and journals, and has recently written a number of internal DND studies on professionalism, unification, militia reorganization, and command control.
