Biography of Robert Klymasz

Dr. Robert Bohdan Klymasz was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1936. In 1957 he obtained his B.A. from the University of Toronto, and later studied at Charles University, Prague (1952), University of Manitoba (M.A. 1960), Harvard University (1960-1962), and Indiana University (Ph.D., 1971). He married Shirley Zaporozan in 1962, and they have two daughters Andrea and Lara. In 1967 he joined the Canadian Museum of Civilization and served as its first program director for Slavic and East European Studies. Throughout his career he has held several prestigious positions, including: the executive director of the Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre (Oseredok ) in Winnipeg; visiting associate professor in Folklore, Department of Folklore, Memorial University (Newfoundland); visiting professor in Folklore and Slavic Studies at the University of California at Los Angeles; and visiting scholar at the Harvard Divinity School. In 2000 he was named Curator Emeritus with the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and is currently an adjunct professor with the Department of German & Slavic Studies (University of Manitoba). Dr. Klymasz is a renowned expert on Ukrainian Canadian folklore, having extensively written, published, and lectured on this subject.. His publications include: An Introduction to the Ukrainian-Canadian Folksong Cycle (1970); Ukrainian Folklore in Canada (1980); “‘Svieto’: Celebrating Ukrainian-Canadian Ritual in East Central Alberta Through the Generations” (1992); and The Icon in Canada (1996).

In 1993, as a curator with the Museum of Civilization, Dr. Klymasz began a comprehensive study on community life in Gimli Manitoba. Fieldwork on this project began in 1993, and continued on an annual basis every summer until the summer of 2001. The project which became known as the Gimli Community Research Project (G.C.R.P.), was meant to offer insight on what makes the Town of Gimli a safe and prosperous town to live in. The early work was low-key in nature, focusing on the town’s life and culture, attending for example, meetings of the town’s council, various public forums, proceedings of the local public law court, and meetings of the Board for the New Iceland Heritage Museum. Gradually the fieldwork shifted to monitoring phenomena that gave Gimli its “dreamtown” quality. The final report was completed in 2002, and was entitled, “Dream Town”: Art and the Celebration of Place in Gimli, Manitoba.
