Jean Morrison, historian at Old Fort William in Thunder Bay for 15 years, has written widely on Fort William and the North West Company. Her credits include North West Company in Rebellion: Simon McGillivray's Fort William Notebook, 1815 (Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society, 1988, reprint 1997) and numerous articles and reviews on the fur trade and local labour history in The Canadian Encyclopedia, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, the Thunder Bay Historical Society's annual Papers and Records, The Beaver and Families (Ontario Genealogical Society). Since retirement in 1990, she has served on the Ontario Geographic Names Board and the Old Fort William Advisory Committee. Morrison loves living in Thunder Bay where she enjoys its multicultural society, its symphony orchestra, theatre companies, art galleries, historical museum and many other cultural opportunities. Besides her church and political activities, she takes time to savour Lake Superior's grandeur and Northwestern Ontario's wilderness. Married to Ken Morrison, she is proud of her three grown daughters, one granddaughter and three grandsons.
