Clara McCandless Thomas (1919-2013), educator and author, was born and educated in Canada, receiving the PhD from the University of Toronto in 1962. She began teaching in the English Department at York University in 1961, and retired from there in 1984, being subsequently named Canadian Studies Research Fellow in the University Libraries and emeritus professor of English.

She has served on the editorial board of such academic journals as Journal of Canadian Studies, Journal of Canadian Fiction, and the Literary Journal of Canada (second edition), as well as writing articles on topics in Canadian literature for many journals.
