About the Author
C. Ian Kyer is a distinguished law-
yer, historian, and author. For more
than thirty years he practised law
with Fasken, a prominent Bay Street
f‌irm. Ranked as one of Canada’s top
500 lawyers, he advised private sec-
tor parties as well as various govern-
ments on numerous projects. On his
retirement from Fasken, he became
in-house counsel to RPM Technolo-
gies, now part of Broadridge, a multi-
national provider of services to the
financial industry. But Ian was an
historian before he became a lawyer
(with a PhD in European history), and he never abandoned his histor-
ical interests; he merely refocused those interests on legal and busi-
ness history. He has written histories of legal education, the Fasken
f‌irm, the origins of the Toronto Transit Commission, and the Canada
Deposit Insurance Corporation. He has also written numerous biog-
raphies of lawyers and businesspeople for the Dictionary of Canadian
Biography, the Canadian Encyclopedia, and New Federation Press,
and a historical novel about Salieri’s relationship with Mozart.
