Scope and content

Ernest W. Harrison was a faculty member in the Department of English at Ryerson University from 1966 to 1983. Harrison earned his BA from Oxford University (1938), his MA from the Honour School of English Language and Literature (1946), his Diploma in Theology from Salisbury and Wells Theological Colleges (1939), his LLB from London University (1948), and his MA from the University of Toronto (1967). From 1939 to 1961, Harrison served in a number of roles within the Anglican church in both England and Canada before being stripped of his ministerial duties following the publication of his book, A Church Without God, in 1976. In 1966, he became a lecturer in English at Ryerson, becoming an instructor-supervisor in the faculty in 1968. In 1971, Harrison was the Acting Dean of Arts and, in 1972, the Acting Dean of Applied Arts and Community Services. Harrison was the Vice-President of the Canadian Authors Association and a member of the Mystery Writers of America. His writing was published in Canadian Forum, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Religious Education Magazine, Education Quarterly, and others. He is the author of several plays for the CBC and BBC, as well as a number of books, including Teach Yourself Faith and Let God Go Free. He wrote the preface to Pierre Berton's 1965 report A Comfortable Pew. Harrison and his wife, Dr. Anis Harrison--a physician with the Bell Telephone Company--had two daughters, Anne and Jane.

Fonds consists of photographic prints and negatives of Harrison, as well as correspondence.
