Biographical history

A native of Nova Scotia, Joyce Hemlow was educated at Queen's University (B.A. 1941, M.A. 1942) and at Radcliffe College (A.M. 1944, Ph.D. 1948). She has taught English literature at McGill since 1945, and in 1965 became Greenshields Professor of English. Though she has taught the whole range of English Renaissance and 18th century literature, Hemlow's main research interest is the novelist and diarist Fanny Burney. In 1958 she published a biography, The History of Fanny Burney and in 1971, A Catalogue of the Burney Family Correspondence. Since 1962, Hemlow has headed a large research project to edit the Journals and Letters of Fanny Burney (Madame D'Arblay), 1791-1840 (Oxford, 1972-). For the Burney Project, see Record Group 82.
