  • 1952-1972

Ella N. Martin was a Senior Lecturer in the Education Department at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Martin studied English Literature at Oxford University and spent a year studying History at the University of Toronto. She joined the staff of the ROM in 1938 following experience as a teacher in Italy, British Columbia, and Ontario and was the first professional teacher to be appointed to the ROM's Education Department. Martin travelled extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, conducting research and lecturing on museum education. She was the recipient of a number of research and travel grants, including a Canada Council Fellowship (1961-1962) and an Adult Education Fellowship (1958). From roughly 1952 to 1971, Martin taught courses in the History of Design as part of a joint program between the ROM and Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. The courses focused on collections- and object-based learning and earned Martin a reputation as a respected museum education innovator. She retired from the ROM in 1971.

Fonds consists of course notes created and accumulated by Martin over the course of her involvement with Ryerson.
