Anthropologist.

Tom earned his PhD in Anthropology from the University of Minnesota and taught at the University of Manitoba for many years. He now lives in England with his wife Jennifer M. Shay. Much of his research has involved bringing historical and archaeological evidence together to study past plant uses. He first became interested in the wood economy of the Red River Settlement during excavations of Upper Fort Garry when a wide variety of 19th-century wood remains were recovered. In 1997, he received the Prix Manitoba Award.
