Biography of William Neville

William Franklin Wymark Neville was born in Winnipeg on September 15, 1940. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree from the University of Manitoba in 1963, Neville read philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford University as a Commonwealth and Rhodes scholar. He graduated from Oxford with a B.A. in 1966 and a M.A. in 1971.

Although Neville had the distinction of being the youngest delegate to the leadership convention which chose John G. Diefenbaker as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party in 1956, he decided to pursue an academic rather than a political career. Neville taught for a number of years at Trent University in Peterborough in both the Departments of Politics and History. He was also a founding member of the Canadian Studies Program at Trent University.

Neville returned to Manitoba to act as chief of staff to Sidney Spivak, QC, Leader of the Opposition in the Manitoba Legislature, but after a bitter leadership battle, which saw Sterling Lyon emerge as party leader in 1975, Neville returned to teaching. However, a battle with City Council, while Chairman of the Winnipeg Public Library Commission, over a plan to establish an independent citizen board stirred him to enter civic politics. With the support of the now-disbanded Independent Citizen's Election Committee (ICEC) behind him, Neville won the Tuxedo Heights ward handily in a 1979 by-election gaining more that four times as many votes as his two independent opponents combined. Re-elected by acclamation in 1980 and 1983 and in a contested election in 1986 Neville represented the ward until his withdrawal from politics in 1989.

During his ten years as a city councillor Neville chaired two important ad hoc committees on freedom of information and helped to introduce a greater measure of openness to a secretive city government. He rose to become one of the more influential members of council as member of the powerful Executive Policy Committee from 1980 to 1982 and again from 1983 to 1986 when he voluntarily withdrew. In late 1988 he removed himself further from the decision-making centre by leaving the city's informal ruling caucus, the Independent Caucus, after a disagreement over the urban limit line against development.

Neville now teaches at the University of Manitoba as an Associate Professor in Political Studies. He has held this position since 1976. He has also been Assistant to the Vice-President (1976-82) and University Coordinator of Canadian Studies (1978-82). At present he is Assistant to the President, a position he has held since 1982 and has been Director of the University of Manitoba International program since 1989.

Neville also writes a weekly political column for the Winnipeg Free Press and is an occasional broadcast commentator on political issues for CBC Radio and Television.

Scope and Contents of the Papers

The William F.W. Neville Collection is organized into three series. The first series consists primarily of material relating to his years on Winnipeg's City Council, the second series contains his personal and university material, and the third series relates to his time as Executive Assistant to Sidney Spivak.

The City Council series contains correspondence, unpublished minutes and research reports from many of the committees that Neville served on during his years on City Council. These include the Executive Policy Committee, the Historic Buildings Committee, the Committee on Environment, the Committee on Protection, Parks and Culture as well as numerous ad hoc committees. As a city councillor Neville took an active interest in heritage and artistic issues and the collection is strong in these areas. As well there is much information concerning major capital development projects in Winnipeg during the 1980s. These include the Core Area Agreement, the North Portage Development and issues surrounding the development of Plan Winnipeg.

The personal and university series contains documents relating to the establishment of the Canadian Studies program at the University of Manitoba which Neville was responsible for as Coordinator of Canadian Studies from 1978 to 1982. Also included are materials regarding the Symons Commission. This commission, headed by Prof. T.H.B. Symons of Trent University, strongly criticized Canadian universities for their general neglect of Canadian Studies.

This series also contains lecture notes for courses in International Relations and Politics that Neville taught at Trent University in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Department of Political Studies material from the University of Manitoba, dated from 1981 to 1992, and drafts of Neville's Free Press columns as well as material from the many community organizations that Neville has been involved with throughout his career. These include the Manitoba Heritage Council, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers and the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

Personal correspondence, newspaper clippings regarding his term as student body President at the University of Manitoba, and material relating to his work on the 1974 election campaign for Duff Roblin are also part of this series.

The third series contains material relating to Neville's work as Executive Assistant to Sidney Spivak, leader of the Progressive Conservative Party.

Custodial History

The William F.W. Neville Collection was donated to the University of Manitoba Department of Archives and Special Collections through several accessions from 1985 to 1994.
