Early Life and Educational Background

Philip Anthony (Tony) Vernon was born in Hendon, England, on August 7, 1950. He was the only son of Philip E. Vernon and Dorothy Vernon nee Lawson. At the age of 3, the family moved to Welwyn Garden City where they lived until 1968. Vernon attended elementary school in Welwyn Garden City, with the exception of 1 year spent in Princeton in the United States when he was 7, and then went to the Dragon School in Oxford and the King’s School in Canterbury for middle school and high school, respectively. He obtained six O levels at the age of 15 and two A levels and an additional O level at age 17.

In 1968 the family emigrated to Canada, living in Calgary, Alberta. Vernon attended the University of Calgary and graduated with a BA in 1982 majoring in English. He then spent 1 year at the University of Toronto studying art history, returned to the University of Calgary and earned a high school teaching credential, and then completed a 2-year Master’s Degree...
