Biographical Sketch

Andrew Taylor B.Sc (C.E.), M.A., Ph.D, D.Sc., O.C.,(1907-1993) has proven to be one of Canada's foremost polar explorers. An immigrant to Canada from Edinburgh, Taylor earned his Engineering Degree from the University of Manitoba in 1931. Upon graduation, he landed a job as a Provincial Surveyor and in that capacity, he observed much of rural Manitoba prior to its transformation at the hands of hydro-electric, agricultural, mineral, timber and urban development.

Taylor moved to Flin Flon Manitoba in 1933 and eventually settled in as Town Engineer. In this capacity, many of the roadways, drains, sewers and water supply lines are left as part of his legacy. The town was as influential on him as he was upon the town. It was here that Taylor met his future wife, Martha Porter, whom he married in 1939. He also developed a close friendship with Phil Foster, Flin Flon's flying plumber. Taylor followed Foster into the Second World War; action which was to ultimately claim Foster's life and leave Taylor embittered for the loss of a close friend and the lack of personal recognition for the part he played in the conflict.

With the outbreak of war, Taylor joined the Canadian Army and travelled to the United Kingdom, where, from his own admission, he saw no action whatsoever. However, in 1943 he was transferred from the Canadian Army to the British Navy as part of a secret mission. The initial name of the mission, "Naval Project 475", was changed to "Operation Tabarin". Taylor sailed with this mission to the Antarctic, where he remained for two years. The project then underwent a second name change becoming known afterwards by the moniker of "The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey". Taylor himself, recruited because of his cold weather surveying experience, later became leader of the expedition. He earned the distinction of being the only Canadian to have ever commanded an expedition in the Antarctic.

In 1946, upon his return from the Antarctic, Taylor received a promotion to Major and a posting in the Canadian Army, specifically to the Direcorate of Enginnering Development in Ottawa. Once there, he was immediately recruited into the role of observer on an American/Canadian weather station reconnassaince venture, called "US Naval Task Force 68". As part of this expedition, Taylor travelled in and around the Queen Elizabeth Islands, the northernmost reaches of the Canadian Arctic. During this tenure at the Directorate, Taylor was appointed to the Canadian Committe of the International Geographic Union (1947) and the Soil and Snow Mechanics Committee, National Research Council (1949).

In 1950, Taylor took an educational sabbatical from the army in order to enrol at the Institute of Geography of the University of Montreal. There, as a result of linguistic miscommunication, he undertook and completed the required course work for both his M.A. and his Ph.D in a single academic year.

Following the year at Montreal, Taylor returned to theDirectorate of Engineer Development in Ottawa, where he worked ostensibly on cold weather testing of military equipment in close cooperation with the U.S. Corp of Engineers Research and Development Labratories at Fort Belvoir, Vermont. In conjunction with this work, Taylor joined the Snow, Ice and Permafrost Research Establishment (SIPRE), where he developed an expertise in the compaction of snow for employment in roads, airstrips and other high pressure uses. Taylor retired from the Army in Oct, 1952, too early to collect a military pension - a situation which became a source of much consternation to him in later years.

Having left the Army, Taylor struck out on his own as a private research contractor. He received an important contract from the geography Branch of the US Navy to produce what ultimately developed into his Ph.D. dissertation. In 1956 he was awarded a second contract, this time from the U.S. Air Force as an assistant project Engineer, working out of Churchill, MB. He was responsible for the preparation of DEW Line station layouts. After only a few months and upon completion of his work in Churchill, Taylor was transferred to New York to complete some "forty odd" reports regarding the project.

As part of his research for his thesis Taylor "discovered" the Arctic Blue Books - or the British Parliamentary Papers. These volumes contained submissions to both the Upper and Lower Houses of the British Parliament regarding 19th century exploration. Unfortunately these volumes were really not produced as a book but rather more as a collection of submissions with neither a table of contents nor an index. Consequently, access to the information contained therein was a difficult process at best. So, Taylor dove head-first into the project that presented itself to him and he indexed the volumes by hand with the aid of his wife and children. The index was comprised of 44,000 index cards which have subsequently been updated, edited and put onto compact disk under the direction of University of Manitoba anthropolist, Dr. William Koolage.

With the completion of his American contracts, Taylor found himself preparing feasability reports for mining companies. From here, it was a natural move to open his own engineering consulting firm, based jointly in Ottawa and Winnipeg. Significant projects his firm undertook were: the relocation of Provincial Trunk Highway # 10 through Riding Mouintain National Park, 1961; the irrigation system for Clear Lake golf Course (also in Riding Mountain National Park) 1961; and Town Planning schemes for Baker Lake, NWT, Eskimo Point, Whale Cove 1962 and other northern communities. It was at this stage in his life that Taylor lost his wife Martha to cancer in 1963. He married Pauline Hansen in November of 1964. She too succumbed to cancer in December of 1979.

Taylor's final professional endeavour was that of joint proprietor of the Antiquarian Book and Art Gallery. It appears that the venture may have been a hobby for the retired Taylor, although this is only speculation.

Through-out his career, Taylor was an avid writer, penning military reports, official and private diaries and an M.A. thesis and a Ph.D. disertation as well. However, during the final dozen or so years of his life he turned to "popular" writing, producing a prodigious quantity of unpublished work, mostly related to the town of Flin Flon.

Scope and Contents of the Papers

MSS 108, PC 110 & MC 1, the Andrew Taylor collection, hold a wide array of materials reflecting the diversity of this multi-faceted individual. The collection has been subdivided into several broad series which are outlined below. Each of these sections have an in-depth scope and content note preceeding the appropriate section. These series include material relating to: Taylor's personal life, his time in the Antarctic, (Operation Tabarin), his time in the Queen Elizabeth Islands (US Naval Task Force 68), his career as a practicing engineer, a general correspondence section and a section which encompasses his prolific, though not successful popular writing career. Beyond that, the collection is replete with maps and photos which enhance and the textual material.

The collection is a very intensive one and facillitates research in a variety of subjects, from the local to the international level. In order to accomodate the researcher, this collection has secured special processing attention; attention few other collection warrant or receive. As a result, there are a few remarks which may make the collection and the finding aid more compatible to the user.

Andrew Taylor was a keen researcher and an even more enthusiastic writer. One result of this exuberance, often times, are several variations of a document. A second consequence is an intense cross referential use of his own documentation. I have made every reasonable effort to determine the intention of the original or initial purpose of the creation of a document or a series of documents and to organize them according to this rationale. Where this phenomenon is most problematic is in the series relating to Taylor's academic career. In the span of ten years, he produced an M.A. thesis, a Ph.D dissertation and published them both, (under varying forms and titles of the original) as well as various article length versions under yet different names. In this series, it has been extremely difficult to distinguish research completed for one project from another. The same can be stated for the many drafts of his writings; the life and times of Phil Foster and the history of Flin Flon come quickly to mind. To those researchers interested in these components of the collection, you are advised to pick your way slowly, patiently and carefully among the collection!

Churchill, 1989-1993 and n.d.

The section entitled Churchill, is largely a retrospective look at Taylor's time spent in Manitoba's northern seaport during 1931 and 1932. This component should be examined in conjunction with the appropriate portion of PC 110 which offers a contemporary pictorial account of the development of the town. Taylor was in Churchill again in 1947, see box 19, Fds 11 & 12.

US Naval Task Force 68: 1947-1993

The section covering US Naval Task Force 68 is a small but significant one in MSS 108. This mission was carried out in the summer of 1947 and gave Taylor the opportunity to travel from one polar region to the other in short order. More importantly, this mission gave Taylor first hand, insightful knowledge of the region of the Canadian north known as the Queen Elizabeth Islands. The most significant material from this component of the collection is contained in the diaries which include personal observations as well as environmental data, conducted through regular observations.

Army Records 1940-1993

Taylor's army career was comprised of three major areas: Operation Tabarin; US Naval Task Force 68; and the Directorate of Engineering Development. The documentary evidence within each of those components are of greater importance than are the documents which make up this army records section. This series is made up of the mundane paperwork from Taylor's career in the Royal Canadian Engineers. It should be noted that these records are not originals, but photocopies from the originals in Ottawa.

Graduate School 1947-1615 and n.d.

Taylor entered graduate school in the summer of 1947 at the Geography Summer School at McGill. He stayed there for two years, and then moved over to the Geography department at the University of Montreal in 1949 where he earned his M.A. and Ph.D. Due to an error in communication, Taylor took extra courses. In fact he took so many extra that he fulfilled his course work requirement for both the M.A. and Ph.D programmes at once. These course notes are held at the beginning of the series. Notes which were not created for specific courses form the next component of the series. These notes form the nuclear corpsus of knowledge for Taylor's subsequent Arctic academic work. They are ostensibly undated, and were probably gathered from various sources over the several years.

Following the completion of his course work in 1950, Taylor began his M.A.,thesis entitled: Geographical Discovery and Exploration of the Queen Elizabeth Islands . The next XXX sections includes the notes and drafts of this thesis as well as the resulting projects which developed out of the thesis. One of these projects was the publication of the treatise by the Geographical Branch of the Department of Mines and Technical Surveys as Memoir #3 (1955). A second major off-shoot was an unpublished history of the Canadian Eastern and the Canadian Western Arctic regions, (1956), which appears to have been a longer version of his Brief History of the Canadian Arctic for the Arctic Pilot , (1956).

At much the same time as Taylor was completing his M.A., he won a contract from the American Geographical Society to produce the Physical Geography of the Queen Elizabeth Islands . This contract, NONR 1070(00), paid him well and at the same time gave him his Ph.D. dissertaion (1956).

It has been impossible to preserve perfect chronological order within this section of the collection. Rather, the emphasis has been on providing the researcher with a paper trail which reflects the provenance of projects and documents which sprang out of Taylor's graduate work. It should be noted that contemporareous with his work in geography, Taylor also undertook his momentous task of indexing the British Parliamentary Papers (Blue Books)!

British Parliamentary Papers (Blue Books) 1818-1993

This section of the collection houses the working elements of Taylor's mamouth indexing project of the British Parliamentary Papers (Arctic blue Books). Apart from some of the index cards, (44,000) existed at one point!) this section contains drafts of catalogue and indicies, correposndence and essays which explain in Taylor's own words, how the project developed and progressed. What these essays do not tell is the final result. Unfortunately, Andrew Taylor did not live to see the indexing project reach the CD ROM stage, a project overseen by Dr. William "Skip" Koolage of the department of Anthropology, University of Manitoba.

Consulting 1955-1967

The section which I have loosely called Consulting covers Taylor's work as an independent businessman. Taylor was not only involved in many academic projects, but he was also a practical engineer and geographer. This section of the collection covers his work as a practicing geographer/engineer. This series holds plans, reports correspondence and notes regarding his work as a private consultant, beginning with a trip to Churchill and beyond to the DEW Line in 1955, through to his survey planning schemes completed in the early to mid 1960's. There is also documentation covering an inquiry launched against him in 1963.
