Professor Donald Creighton of the University of Toronto became one of English Canada's leading historians of the 20th century. His two volume biography of Sir John A., published in the 1950s, became the standard biographical study of the Father of Confederation. So thorough was it considered, that it was not until journalist Richard Gwyn embarked on a similar two-volume study of Sir John A. in the 2000s that Sir John A. was given an intense examination in a historical sense.
