Biographical history

Jacques Castonguay (1926- ) served with the Royal Canadian Air Force and was a University Professor. A native of Quebec City, he received his BA from Laval University, and a PhD in Psychology in 1960 from the University of Montreal. During the Second World War (1943-1945), he served with the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, and in 1958 he re-enrolled with the Royal Canadian Air Force, first as a reserve member and then for nine years as a member of the regular force. When he retired from the Canadian Forces in 1970 he held the rank of major. He has taught in three universities, particularly at the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean (1963-66/1970-89). He retired in 1989.
