Fred Flahiff

F.T. Flahiff first met the renowned Canadian author Sheila Watson when they were both graduate students in Marshall McLuhan’s graduate seminar at the University of Toronto. The two formed a connection that, 40 years later, compelled Watson to entrust her biography to Flahiff. Always Someone to Kill the Doves: A Life of Sheila Watson was released in 2005.

Flahiff would make Toronto his permanent home, teaching at St. Michael’s College at the U of T until his retirement in 1999.
