Biographical history

The Honourable James K. Bartleman was born in Orillia, Ontario in 1939. From 1966 to 2002, he served as a diplomat in Canada’s foreign service and, from 2002 to 2007, as Ontario’s 27th Lieutenant Governor. Mr. Bartleman is a member of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation and was Ontario’s first Aboriginal vice regal representative, devoting much of his time to promoting literacy among Indigenous children and combating the stigma associated with mental illness. He is an author, having written five books of non-fiction, including two which won the Joseph Brant award on multicultural history, and two novels with social justice themes relating to the condition of Indigenous people. Titles include Out of Muskoka (2002); On six continents: a life in Canada’s foreign service, 1966-2002 (2004); Rollercoaster: my hectic years as Jean Chretien’s diplomatic advisor, 1994-1998 (2005); As long as the rivers flow (2011); and The redemption of Oscar Wolf (2013). Citing his connection to the Peterborough area and his recognition of Trent University’s “outstanding native studies program,” Mr. Bartleman offered his papers to Trent University Archives in 2013. (Taken from correspondence received from The Honourable James K. Bartleman, 2013).
