Parker, Sir Horatio Gilbert George
1860 - 09/06/1932
University of Toronto
Novelist and politician; Correct date of birth: born 1860, not 1862. Wellesley, following the DNB, gave 1862 as Sir Gilbert’s year of birth; however, John Coldwell Adams, Seated with the Mighty. A biography of Sir Gilbert Parker (Ottawa, Canada: Borealis Press, 1979), based on careful research and archival sources, corrects this to 1860, as do Elizabeth Waterston, Gilbert Parker (1860-1932) (Toronto: ECW Press, n.d. but after 1986) and the ODNB.
(Also in the Wellesley Index.)
