About the Author

Gregory Klages is the research director for Death on a Painted Lake: The Tom Thomson Tragedy, one of twelve archival websites produced by the international award-winning Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History project. His research concerning Thomson has appeared in Canadian and American publications, and been talked about in national newspapers. He has also shared his insights on television and radio across the country. He lives in Toronto.


Klages examines each hypothesis in turn, in clean, crisp prose. * * Klages has produced a timely and valuable contribution to the literature on Thomson that certainly will be of interest to historians, artists, and popular audiences. * Canadian Historical Review * The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson stands as both a conscientious case study and a larger investigation into what history can and cannot do. * Canada's History * Klages' forensic archival sleuthing does provide, for the first time in almost a century, some degree of certainty surrounding this event. -- Kathleen Garay and Christl Verduyn * Archival Narratives for Canada *
