Stephen Lyon Endicott

Stephen Lyon Endicott was born in 1928 in Shanghai of Canadian missionary parents and grew up in China before the Communist revolution. His family lived in Sichuan province for three generations where he returned to teach in the 1980’s. His wife, Lena Wilson Endicott, is a Toronto artist. Their four daughters, Marion, Lorraine, Irene, and Valerie, who all attended Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute, share many interests including camping and canoeing the rivers and lakes of Ontario.

Dr. Endicott is a graduate of Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute and of the University of Toronto. He has worked at various jobs including labour youth organizer, high school teacher, and university professor. He has received the Lillam Senior Fellowship and other academic awards while teaching East Asian history at York University. His books include Diplomacy and Enterprise: British China Policy 1933-1937, James G. Endicott: Rebel Out of China, Red Earth: Revolution in a Sichuan Village, The Red Dragon: China 1949-1990, The United States and Biological Warfare: secrets of the Early Cold War and Korea, and Bienfait: the Saskatchewan miner’s struggle of 1931 (forthcoming 2002).

Stephen Endicott well remembers his days at Vaughan: playing forward on the school basketball team, the Earl Rowe debating tournament, learning Latin and French, tea dances in the gym, and proms at Casa Loma. He helped organize the "18 Year-old Vote Committee" at the school during the Federal Election of 1945.
