In Memoriam Tom
to inform the Canadian Classics community of the death of our retired colleague
Tom Elliott in Toronto on Saturday, 22 May 2010, after a lengthy illness. A
private funeral was held on Thursday, 27 May 2010.
Thomas G. Elliott took
his B.A. (Honours) in Classics at University College, University of Toronto,
1957-1961, and then pursued graduate work at Harvard University, from which he
earned his doctorate in 1971 with a thesis on 'Pagan
bias in Ammianus Marcellinus XIV-XXIV'.
Having taught at Trinity College, Hartford, for three years (1964-1967), he
returned to Toronto in 1967 to take up a position as Assistant Professor. He was
the first classicist to be appointed to Erindale College (now known as the
University of Toronto Mississauga), and one of the original cohort of faculty
who began teaching in Erindale's
first year of operation, 1967-68. He was promoted to Associate Professor in
1978, and retired in 2004. He authored two books, Ammianus Marcellinus and
Fourth Century History (Toronto 1983) and The Christianity of Constantine the
Great (Scranton 1996), as well as a number of articles on late antiquity and
reviews of scholarly works in that area, and taught a wide range of courses in
ancient history, classical art and archaeology, and ancient science and
On behalf of the Department of Classics at the University of
Toronto, I would like to extend our sympathy to his surviving family members at
this painful time.
