About the Author

Canon Cyril E.H. Williams was ordained a deacon of the Anglican Church on May 3, 1942 at St. Johns Church, North Vancouver. His first posting was to Mayo, Yukon, where he and his wife, Lilian spent two years. While at Mayo, he was ordained a priest. From Mayo, Cyril went to Merritt, B.C., where he ministered for four and a half years before being posted to Lytton, B.C. While at Lytton, he became intrigued by the stained glass window in the Indian church of St. Paul's and St. Mary's, depicting Archdeacon Small on horseback. He decided to find out more about Small. Cyril Williams' meticulous research spanned more than three years. In 1952, while ministering in Lytton, Cyril suffered paralysis down his right side. After lengthy and difficult therapy, he was able to return to his beloved church work, but in a different role. From June, 1960 to the end of 1979, he ably filled the position of archivist in the Anglican Church Archives, Vancouver School of Theology, University of British Columbia.
