Edward (Ted) Harold Humphreys, Original Faculty Member

December 10, 2020

We recently heard of the passing of Ted Humphreys, one of the original faculty hired to the newly formed Ontario Institute for Studies in Education back in the late 1960s where he conducted research and supported graduate students in the Education Planning and Educational Administrative units.

He was widely known at OISE in the 1970s and 80s and was affectionately remembered for effectively negotiating faculty and staff contracts with OISE's Board of Governors, resulting in favourable salary and benefit conditions. Dean Glen A. Jones had the pleasure of taking his graduate course on collective bargaining. Take a moment to review more details of Ted’s life through the following Globe and Mail obituary.
