In Memoriam Tom Elliott

From: Alison Keith

I regret 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 technology.

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.
