Biographical history

S. R. Gage was educated at McGill University and the University of Glasgow. He is the author of several books including A Few Rustic Huts, which provides a history of ranger's cabins in Algonquin Park. His interest in the Canol project undertaken in the World War II era grew out of a canoe trip on the Natla and Keele rivers in 1981. He was also interested in the management of Ontario's provincial parks. Gage was also on the Rouge Valley Park Advisory Committee (Ontario).
