Personal Details

Ian Greene has taught public policy and administration in York University's political science department since 1985. Ian brings to his teaching the insights gained from four years of work in Alberta's public service. He was assistant to the Minister of Consumer Affairs, Bob Dowling, in the early 1970s, and was Assistant to the Regional Director of Social Services in Lethbridge from 1982-85.

On the home front, Ian and his wife Eilonwy Morgan, who is a Chartered Accountant.  They have three children -- Christina (22), Philip (20) and Girum (12).  Both Christina and Philip formerly attended the High Park Alternative School (highly recommended). Christina and Philip are graduates of Humberside Collegiate.  Girum attended the Indian Road Crescent School, and is now at Runnymede Public School.   Girum attends St. Martin's Sunday School, where Phil and Christina sometimes help with events.  Ian was one of the choir leaders at the High Park Alternative School, and was a Sunday School teacher at St. Martin's.  Christina was born just in time for Ian to take his sabbatical at Clare Hall in Cambridge, England in 1992.  The family returned to Clare hall during the summer of 2000; the hardest part for everyone was leaving.  Clare Hall is a family-oriented college, and once again, all of us made friends from all over the world.  Ian is delighted that the children enjoy hiking in the Canadian Rockies, and cross-country skiing, Ian's favourite sports, as well as riding.  As well, all three love playing the piano, and Phil plays a mean jazz trumpet.  Phil and Girum play hockey in the Swansea house league.  Christina did competitive dance at Gotta Dance, and used to be in Pathfinders, and was a member of the High Park Childrens Choir and choirs at Humberside.  Philip was a Venturer, and used to do Fencing.  Girum was a Scout, and Ian is an occasional Beaver leader for the Toronto 32nd.  (Parents are kept out of mischief by constant chauffeuring.)  The kids are just starting to get interested in family history.  Eilonwy and Christina participated in the Santa Claus Parade, 2000, after which the family had their portrait taken. Our good friend, Onnig Cavoukian, took this more recent family photo in 2009.
