History

Anne Innis Dagg was a faculty member at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, in Independent Studies. She is a scholar and writer in several areas of interest, from zoology to women's studies. The daughter of Mary Quayle Innis and Harold Adams Innis, Anne was born on January 25, 1933, in Toronto, Ontario.

She became interested in giraffes as a child, and went on to take a BA from the University of Toronto in Honours Biology in 1955 (as gold medalist), and an MA from the University of Toronto in genetics in 1956, where she was also a demonstrator for botany and genetics from 1954-1956. She then traveled alone to South Africa to study the giraffe in 1956-1957.
In 1957 she married Ian Dagg, a physicist. They moved to Waterloo, Ontario, in 1959, where Ian became a professor at the new University of Waterloo.
Anne worked as a part-time lecturer at Waterloo Lutheran University in anatomy and physiology from 1962-1965, and then as an anatomy demonstrator at the University of Waterloo in 1966. In 1967 she earned her PhD, which examined gaits and their development in Infraorder Pecora, from the University of Waterloo. She was also a sessional assistant professor at the University of Guelph, Department of Zoology that year.

Anne Innis Dagg did research at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia, in 1967-1968, when on Ian’s sabbatical with their family of three children. She was an assistant professor at the University of Guelph, Department of Zoology, from 1968-1972 where she taught mammalogy, wildlife management and general biology. She became a resource person for Integrated Studies at the University of Waterloo from 1978-1985, the Academic Director for Independent Studies (the same program but renamed) from 1986-1989, and finally senior academic advisor for this program from 1989 to the present.
