Name of creator
Stephen Reynolds was an Anglican priest and a Professor of Theology at Trinity College. He was born on 6 August 1951 in Mineola, New York, son of Andrew and Mary (O’Brien) Reynolds. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire (1973), he attended the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College and received his MDiv in 1978. He was ordained deacon and then priest the same year at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Baptist, St. John’s, Newfoundland. In 1981 he moved back to Toronto and took up responsibilities in a series of congregations, including Grace Church on the Hill, Trinity College Chapel, the Church of St. Mary Magdalene (SMM), and Church of the Redeemer. He also enrolled in the ThD program at Trinity College, completing his degree in 1989. During this time he was a Tutor of Theology, occasional lecturer, and in his final year the Sidney Childs Fellow in Divinity. From 1995 until his death he was Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology. A major publication for the Anglican Church of Canada, <i>For All the Saints: Prayers and Readings for Saints’ Days according to the Calendar of The Book of Alternative Services</i>, was published in 1995.
Reynolds married Mary Virginia Hawken in 1978. Their daughter, Hannah Elizabeth, was born in 1989. A diabetic for most of his life, Stephen Reynolds became acutely ill during the winter of 2010-11 and died on 12 March 2011 at his home in Toronto.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of records kept by Stephen Reynolds during the course of his adult life. These include correspondence with family, friends, and colleagues that illuminate his personal life, his Christian faith, and his various pastoral and intellectual pursuits. Carbon copies of many outgoing letters were created and kept. Reynolds kept an intermittent diary through the time period represented here. These were sometimes typed, and often handwritten in small notebooks. He apparently removed pages from these notebooks and inserted them in files with correspondence and other material from the same time period.
Other records include academic papers, research material, sermons, prayers, drafts of manuscripts, course materials, and some official documents such as academic transcripts.
