Mary Beacock Fryer 1929 - 2017

Posted on October 31 by Kyle

We're deeply saddened to share the passing of Dundurn's first author, Mary Beacock Fryer.

Mrs. Fryer was born in Brockville in 1929. Her love of history showed as a young woman and she eventually graduated from The University of Toronto with an Honours Degree in Historical Geography.

She worked as a town planner, instructor, and map curator before moving on to become a dedicated author in 1974.
