Name of creator
William Harvard McEwen was born on February 7, 1902 in Owen Sound, Ontario. He received a B.Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan in 1921 and obtained an M.Sc. the following year. He furthered his education by receiving an M.A. in 1924 and Ph.D. in 1930 from the University of Minnesota.
He taught at Regina College from 1925-1929. In 1930 he joined Mount Allison University as an assistant professor of Mathematics, and by 1933 he was a full professor and head of the department. He came to the University of Manitoba in the fall of 1946 as head of the Mathematics Department. In 1949 he was named the first Dean of Graduate Studies and he held this position until 1964. Upon his retirement, Dr. McEwen was made a Professor Emeritus in 1967.
