W.H. Ellis' Laboratory Notes


W.H.Ellis, c.1883. Proceedings of the Royal Society of Canada (1883), p.vii.

Chemistry  classes were taught by W.H. Ellis who was appointed Professor of  Applied Chemistry in 1880. From 1878 until 1885 the SPS had just these  two--Galbraith and Ellis--as directly appointed teaching staff, though students also received instruction in some subjects at University College. [1]
