Dates of existence



George Frederick Boyer (1919-1960) was born in Woodstock, New Brunswick. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1938. Boyer worked on a reforestation project for the New Brunswick government until World War II began. The project was delayed when Boyer enlisted in the 89th Field Battery in Woodstock and later, the 89th Anti Aircraft Battery. In 1940, he was sent overseas to Italy and Holland. Boyer married Joan Hamblin of Bosham, England, in 1943.

After the war ended, Boyer returned to Canada and entered graduate school at the University of Illinois in 1946. He received a Masters of Science Degree in 1951. While working on his graduate courses, Boyer studied biology at Woods Hole, Massachusetts, in 1947, and in that same year, started to work as a biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service in Sackville, New Brunswick, where he studied the pintail duck. He later moved to Maple, Ontario, to work in James Bay on the Canada goose. At the time of his death, in 1960, Boyer had just been appointed in charge of research in Eastern Canada for the Canadian Wildlife Service and would have been stationed in Ottawa.
