Gwyneth Hoyle

Gwyneth Hoyle graduated from University with a degree in Maths and Science and her first job was in Chalk River as a Human Computer just like the women recently celebrated in the movie Hidden Figures. For many years Gwyneth was the librarian at Peter Robinson College, Trent University and played viola for the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra. But she has also had a life-long interest in the Arctic and canoeing and has written extensively about these. Now retired, she continues to research and write about northern subjects. In addition to articles on canoeing and the historic fur trade, she has written three books, Canoeing North into the UnknownFlowers in the Snow, and The Northern Horizons of Guy Blanchet.

  1. A fascinating interview. I immediately went online to find a copy of Flowers in the Snow: The Life of Isobel Wylie Hutchison.

  2. I am reading “Flowers in the Snow” by Gwyneth Hole after having heard her talk about it in the above interview. A most welcome, interesting and well-written piece of scholarship! Thank you Gwyneth Hoyle!
