Biographical history

James de Mille was appointed the first Professor of History and Rhetoric at Dalhousie University in 1865, but the introduction of English literary studies to Canadian universities as a separate discipline started in 1882 with the appointment of Jacob Gould Sherman as Munro Professor of English Language and Literature. He was replaced two years later by W.J. Alexander, who was succeeded by Archibald MacMechan, who taught until his retirement in 1931. It was not until 1925 that the university calendar indicates an actual English department, alongside MacMechan's name as its head.
