Reference work entry


Gras was born in 1884 in Toronto, Canada. His family were not well off, but high intelligence won him scholarships and made possible his education, first at the University of Western Ontario, and then at Harvard with a PhD thesis directed by Edwin F. Gay. He taught at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and then from 1918 to 1927 at the University of Minnesota, where he was Professor of English History.
