Canniff, William, 1830-1910

William Canniff collection. -- 1869. -- 25 cm of textual records.

William Canniff was a physician, medical educator, author, school administrator, and civil servant, born 20 June 1830 in Thurlow townships, Upper Canada. See Dictionary of Canadian Biography, Vol 13, pp. 156-9 for a detailed biographical sketch.

The collection consists of a disbound copy of the History of the Settlement of Upper Canada (Toronto: 1969) with corrections and revisions. Pages 52-64, 250-252, and 272 are missing. This was presumably used as the setting copy for the revised edition of the book, which was published in 1872 as the History of the Province of Ontario
