He also earned a master’s of education from Sheffield University and his PhD from Leeds University along with a number of university diplomae in literature, teaching, public administration, and educational administration before moving to Canada.

After teaching and serving as a department head at the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Edmonds came to the newly constituted University of Prince Edward Island, becoming the first dean of education. Dr. Edmonds is widely published, with many books to his credit (including two of poetry) and was recognized in later years for his long-time dedication to teaching history classes to seniors.

He was a long-standing fellow of the Royal Historical Society, knight of the Order of St. John, an honorary citizen of Texas, and served and held leadership positions in a number of professional, community and charitable organizations.

Dr. Edmonds was the beloved husband of Jane (Murray), loving father of Iain and Kirsty Stewart (Bob) and dear grandfather of Jeni, James, and Thomas. He is remembered by stepchildren, Catherine Murray-Grandjean, Dan Murray, and Sue Murray, and nine stepgrandchildren. He was predeceased by his first wife, Ruth Auty. He passed away on December 4 at the age of 95.
