Datas de existência
Currelly was born at Exeter, Ontario in 1876. Although trained as a Methodist minister, following his graduation from the University of Toronto, he devoted himself to archaeological work, first in Egypt, and later in Crete and Asia Minor.
Wile in Egypt Currelly began collecting for people in Britain and Canada, including Sir Edmund Walker, the father of a classmate and a prominent Torontonian who wished to establish a major museum in the city. With money provided by private donors, the University of Toronto and the Government of Ontario, Currelly began collecting for the future museum. He was appointed its director in 1914 and held this position until his retirement in 1946.
A visionary museum-builder, Currelly dedicated his life to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). He believed museums had an educational purpose: to display the material achievements of humanity through all time, so as to inspire the present-day.
Shortly before his death, he published his autobiography, I Brought the Ages Home. The book is filled with tales of the adventures and people he encountered in his travels and museum work.
