ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

SPECIAL THANKS ARE due to many people. Amongst them are Clifford Williams who lent us his two theses and other research material which proved indispensable; Roland Houde who gave us full access to his as yet unpublished massive bibliography; Yvan Lamonde who shared with us his work on French-Canadian thought; Hilton Page who guided us through the work of some Maritime thinkers; the Reverend William Briggs who shared with us memories of Rupert Lodge; Thomas Goudge who shared his extensive knowledge on many issues; and the Reverend F. W. Waters who gave us notes on, and shared his personal knowledge of, James Ten Broeke.

Sincere gratitude is extended to Constance Blewett who lent us books of her father, George Blewett, and an unpublished biography of him by William J. Rose; to Alice M. S. Lighthall who spoke with us about her father, W. D. Lighthall, and lent us his books; to Molly Irving who provided us with material about John Irving; and to Walter H. Johns who arranged for us an interview with John Macdonald.

There are many others, too numerous to mention, from Canada, who talked and corresponded with us and to whom we owe thanks. During research travels to England and Scotland further insight was gained into the traditions and backgrounds of the philosophers who came to Canada in discussions with Robin Downie, Margaret Paton, Sir T. M. Knox, and Richard S. Peters, and to them go special thanks.

Allison Johnson probably knows as much about philosophy in English Canada as anyone alive and he willingly shared his knowledge and his books. Michael Cross and George Grant shared with us historical perspectives, and Morton Paterson, who initiated the first workshop on Canadian philosophy, corresponded with us about Blewett. Douglas Verney and Robin Mathews took a constant interest in our project and urged us on. And the works and encouraging words of Northrop Frye and George Grant helped us finish the task.

The sheer logistics of discovery were simplified enormously by archivists across the country--in particular Sandra Guillaume, Charles
