From 1961 to 1977, Stromquist served as head of the department. He was a member of the Interior Design Educators Council for over 25 years, serving as its chairperson for the Eastern region for 3 years in the mid-1970s. Upon his retirement from Ryerson, the B.H.

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.

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.
