ROBERTS, Charles George Douglas, Canadian poet, born in Douglas, York County, New Brunswick, 10 January, 1860. He was graduated at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, in 1879, became principal of the Chatham grammar-school in 1879, and of the York street school in 1882. He assumed the editorship of the Toronto " Week " in December, 1883, and was appointed professor of English and French literature and political economy in the University of King's college, Windsor, Nova Scotia, in October, 1885. Those of his poetical compositions that are distinctively Canadian are regarded as being specially excellent. He has published "Orion, and other Poems" (Philadelphia, 1880); "In Divers Tones" (Boston and Montreal, 1887); and edited "Poems of Wildlife" in the series of Canterbury poets (1888). Mr. Roberts has also contributed to periodical literature, and is an earnest advocate of Canadian nationalism.
