Canadian Biographical Studies No. 5. “The Denison Family of Toronto focuses on George Denison III (1839-1925),military historian, senior police magistrate, and supporter of the Canada First and Imperial Federation movements. His story proves that ?Canada has produced some memorable individuals whose activities have for too long beenobscured by historians' preoccupation with grander themes.
