Biography / Administrative history

William George Richardson Hind (1833-1889) was born in Nottingham, England and emigrated to Canada in 1851. He was appointed Drawing Master at the Toronto Normal School until 1857 when he returned to England. In 1861 he joined an expedition up the Moisie River in Québec which was led by his brother Henry Youle Hind. His sketches were used to illustrate the account of the expedition Explorations in the interior of the Labrador peninsula, 1863. In 1862 Hind joined the Overlanders, a group of men who trekked overland to the Cariboo goldfields in British Columbia. He lived in Victoria from 1863 to 1869 and then in Winnipeg until 1870, when he once again followed his brother, Henry Youle Hind, to the Atlantic region and likely worked for the International Railway Company. He died in Sussex, New Brunswick. Dictionary of Canadian Biography, vol. XI.
