His area of speciality was Modern British History. Dr. Fritz was employed as a professor of history at McMaster University from 1966 until his retirement in 1999.

He has authored and edited several books including The English Ministers and Jacobitism, Women in the 18th Century, City and Society in the 18th Century, plus a wide range of scholarly articles, many of them dealing with British Royalty.

His awards include the Gold Medal in History and the Peace Prize Medal from Queen's in 1961. He also received the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal for Contributions to Historical Studies in Canada and in 1978 was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (England).

Upon retirement from McMaster he became widely involved in writing and researching the history of the Leeds & Grenville area.
