Biographical history

Nancy Ossenberg was born on April 23, 1933 in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, graduated from Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute in Toronto, and earned her degrees (BA, MA, PhD) at the University of Toronto. She taught in the Anatomy Department at the University of Alberta before moving to Queens University in the Department of Anatomy where she taught and researched for 25 years, retiring in 1998. In addition to being a beloved teacher of anatomy, Nancy was a well-respected physical anthropologist, and left a significant body of research on human ethnogenesis and the migrations of humans to the North American continent.
