Biography / Administrative history
Loring Cheney Christie, lawyer and diplomat, was born in 1885 at Amherst, N.S., and received a B.A. from Acadia University in 1905, and a LL.B. from Harvard University in 1909. While at Harvard, he was one of the editors of the Harvard Law Review.
Loring Christie became legal adviser to the Department of External Affairs in 1913, after having spent several years in the United States Department of Justice. He was Prime Minister Borden's chief expert on international problems and Borden's confidential assistant during World War I. He accompanied Borden to the 1917 and 1918 meetings of the Imperial War Cabinet, the Paris Peace Conference, and the Washington Conference. In 1923, Christie resigned from the Department and went to work for Dunn, Fisher, and Company, a financial house in London, England, from 1923 until 1926.
After serving as special assistant to the Chairman of Ontario Hydro, 1927-1929, and legal adviser to the Beauharnois Light Heat and Power Company, 1929-1935, Christie rejoined the Department of External Affairs in 1935. He was appointed Canadian minister to the United States in 1939, and held this position until his death in 1941.
