Biographical history

Wayne Ingalls was born in 1939 in Vancouver, British Columbia. He received a BA from the University of British Columbia and pursued his studies at University of Toronto, where he received his MA (1964) and his PhD (1971) in Classics. He taught at Bishops University (1967-1972), and later moved on to Mount Saint Vincent University where he worked for many years as a senior administrator. His posts included Assistant Academic Dean (1973- 1979), and Director of Research and Publications (1973-1979). This position changed in 1979 and Dr. Ingalls was then Director of Research and Special Projects (1979-1987), which included overseeing and developing the MSVU international development work.

Throughout his time at the Mount, Dr. Ingalls continued to teach and was Associate Professor of History and Speech and Drama (1973-1999). Since 1999
Dr. Ingalls has held the rank of Professor and will until 2005. Dr. Ingalls' research has ranged broadly, including early work on Homeric composition, then on institution building in higher education, especially in the third world, and most recently on children and education in ancient Greece. Examples of his research can be found in the following publications: Canadian Journal of International Development Studies (1998); Canadian and International
Education (1996); Phoenix (2002, 2000, 1982, 1972, 1971, 1970); Echos du monde classique (2001, 2000, 1998); Canadian Journal of Higher Education (1981), Mouseion
