    Biographical history

    Edith Ferguson (1903- ), author and educator, was born in Canada and educated at Queen's University (Ontario) and Columbia University, obtaining the MA from the latter school in 1949. She worked with the United Nations Refugee & Relief Administration in the aftermath of World War II and this service strengthened her interest in refugee and immigrant integration into Canadian society, a field in which she wrote and studied for forty years. Ferguson was commissioned to write reports on immigrants in Canada for several bodies including the Royal Commission on the Status of Women, the Ontario Economic Council, the Social Planning Council of Metro Toronto (where she was employed in the 1960s), and the International Institute of Metropolitan Toronto. Ferguson is the author of 'Immigrants in Canada,' (1974 & 1978), 'Immigrant integration: our obligations -- political, social and economic -- to the 1,700,000 people who have come to Ontario in the past quarter century,' (1970), and 'Newcomers and new learning,' (1966).
