Biographical history

William Wilfred Campbell was born in Berlin (Kitchener), Ontario, on June 1, 1861. He was educated at the University of Toronto and continued on to the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1885, he was ordained to the Church of England ministry and, soon afterwards, was appointed to a parish in New England. Returning to Canada in 1888, he became Rector of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. He retired in 1891 from the Church and moved to Ottawa, where he began to write short poems in a village paper, after which he became a contributor to the Atlantic Monthly, the Century and Harper's. He had a number of volumes of his poems published. He was a member of the Royal Society of Canada. Campbell died in 1918.
