Bruce TRIGGER: Archaeologist, Anthropologist (1937-2006)
McGill University professor was one of Canada's great, yet uncelebrated, minds, writes Sandra MARTIN. Uninterested in self-promotion, he refused to rearrange history in order to make it agree with his theories
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
Archaeologist, anthropologist and historian Bruce TRIGGER had a wide-ranging intellectual curiosity that roamed across civilizations from ancient Egyptians in Africa to the Huron Confederacy in Eastern Canada -- historical time frames and scholarly disciplines. He understood from an early age that complexity was an underlying factor in human behaviour, an insight that made him wary of ideological determinism and rigid methodological approaches to data.
"He was a dedicated Canadian patriot," said his McGill University colleague Michael Bisson. "He was extremely interested in Canada's history, but he was also interested in the history of inequality and that was the crucial thing that led him to look at early civilizations and at how social and political inequalities developed."
Of his two dozen books, three are considered masterpieces: The Children of Aataentsic: A History of the Huron People to 1660 A History of Archaeological Thought; and Understanding Early Civilizations: A Comparative Study.
Writing in Saturday Night magazine in 1986, journalist Boyce Richardson called Aataentsic "a work of such historical imagination and literary quality that TRIGGER deserves to rank with Harold Innis, Northrop Frye, and Marshall McLuhan -- Canadian academics known abroad for their critical imaginations and honoured at home for their contributions to Canadian self-knowledge." And yet, Mr. Richardson lamented, fully 10 years after the publication of Aataentsic, that it had sold only 1,500 copies.
One of those books was bought for Ron Williamson as a Christmas present from his parents. In 1976, he was an undergraduate at the University of Western Ontario and he already knew that he wanted to be an archaeologist and that he had to have Prof. TRIGGER's two-volume work. "It changed my life," he said yesterday. "There was no comprehensive treatment of that period that covered not only the Huron, but all of their allies and enemies in the Great Lakes Region… and gave voice to the people in that history in a way that was different from anything that came before. Reading TRIGGER brought that whole world alive to me." He was so stimulated that he went to McGill to study under Prof. TRIGGER.
What made Prof. TRIGGER different from almost anyone else as a teacher, a scholar and a human being is the thoroughness and integrity of his work, according to Ursula FRANKLIN, university professor emeritus at the University of Toronto. "He let the evidence speak, he didn't rearrange history to fit his theory. He had the incredible ability to step back and see what is a figment of somebody's wishful imagination and what is sustained by internally consistent facts," Prof. FRANKLIN said yesterday.
In contrast to some archaeologists, she said, Prof. TRIGGER had a great openness to different sources -- from science, folklore, oral history -- but he always evaluated them with rigour and integrity. He applied those same standards to every aspect of his life, as a scholar, teacher, husband and father. "If you gave me the choice of [naming] one intellectual, in the very best sense of the world, a citizen who used an exceptional intellect carefully, humbly and immensely effectively in Canada, I would say that's Bruce."
Bruce Graham TRIGGER was the only child of John and Elizabeth (neé GRAHAM) TRIGGER. His childhood was lonely because his father, an operator for Ontario Hydro, often worked the night shift and slept during the day, and his mother seemed preoccupied with her own interests. His life-long friend, set designer Maxine GRAHAM, remembered him as "a very precocious child" who could be "quite imperious." At 7, he had already absorbed The Book of Knowledge and was "reading the Bible for fun."
When not yet 10, he had an even more formative reading experience after having succumbed to chicken pox and infecting his father. While they were both recuperating, Mr. TRIGGER showed his son a lavishly illustrated book on ancient Egypt. "I was wonderstruck," Prof. TRIGGER recalled in Retrospection, an essay that he wrote for The Archaeology of Bruce Trigger: Theoretical Empiricism, a festschrift edited by Doctor Williamson and Prof. Bisson.
His early interest in Egyptian archaeology prompted an awareness of the history of his own province, which was abetted by occasional newspaper articles at the time about a dig at Sainte-Marie-among-the-Hurons and Ojibwa artifacts that were still turning up in local farmers' fields. Hydro transferred John TRIGGER to Saint Mary's, Ontario, and then to nearby Stratford, which meant that young Bruce had to switch schools and leave Friends behind, so he spent even more time metaphorically digging into ancient Egyptian and First Nations archaeology.
After high school, he enrolled in the University of Toronto in 1955, doing fieldwork in his final two summers with Norman Emerson. After graduating with a degree in anthropology in 1959, he headed to Yale University on a Woodrow Wilson fellowship to do a PhD in anthropology, along with two other undergraduates, Richard Pearson and George MacDonald, both of whom would also become significant scholars. As he noted many years later, "there was no alternative to going abroad to study." At the time, there was no established graduate program in anthropology in Canada, but he always intended to come back as soon as he could find a teaching job.
He joined the Pennsylvania-Yale Expedition to Nubia that was carrying out rescue anthropology before the area was flooded by the Aswan High Dam project. That led to his dissertation, which was published as History and Settlement in Lower Nubia in 1965. He was able to show that environmental conditions, technological innovations, trade and war were the four factors that accounted for changes in the size and location of settlements. This complex approach to understanding human behaviour became a trademark of his scholarly work.
He had become increasingly nostalgic for Canada during the years he spent living in what he later described as "imperial America," a society in which political debate was limited and "citizens almost unanimously agreed that their way of life was the most advanced and perfect in human history …" Determined to help reverse the brain drain, he ignored the advice of American academic colleagues who warned him that he would be in an academic backwater if he returned home, and accepted an appointment at McGill in 1964. That is where he stayed for the next four decades, despite many offers of distinguished chairs at illustrious institutions abroad. He preferred to build a department and a discipline in Canada rather than to chase international scholarly accolades.
At the McGill Faculty Club in the fall of 1965, he was introduced to Barbara WELCH, an English geographer who was teaching at the university. They were married in London in 1968 and subsequently had two daughters, Isabel, a particle physicist, and Rosalyn, a historical geographer. He was a very engaged father. Rosalyn remembers intense family discussions at the dinner table with people leaping up to get books to substantiate their arguments. "I think he went to a lot of trouble to ensure that my childhood, and that of my sister, was quite different from the one he had himself," said Ms. TRIGGER, who has "lots of happy memories" of her father coming home at midday from McGill to scoop up his daughters for impromptu lunches.
"He hired me in 1974," said Michael Bisson, chair of the department of anthropology at McGill. He was "absolutely wonderful" to work with, said Prof. Bisson, describing Prof. TRIGGER as a very hard working scholar, a huge contributor as a teacher and administrator, and a conciliator in disputatious situations. "He was quite a shy person, which is one of the reasons he didn't go to a lot of academic conferences and make presentations. He wasn't into self-promotion."
A dedicated teacher, Prof. TRIGGER taught mainly advanced courses, as befitted the leading theoretician and author of the definitive texts in the field. He used those books, Archaeological Thought and Early Civilizations, as the basis for two of his major courses. He was very interested in the synergy between undergraduate teaching and cutting-edge scholarship. Unlike many eminent scholars who have little time or patience for undergraduates, Prof. TRIGGER was "very accessible," said Prof. Bisson.
Prof. TRIGGER fell ill about a year ago and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November of 2005. The prognosis was brutal, but even while submitting to aggressive chemotherapy, Prof. TRIGGER continued his prodigious work load. It was almost as though he feared time was short and set his mind to completing unfinished tasks and embarking on new projects. He worked on the galleys of a revised edition of A History of Archaeological Thought, contributed to the festschrift in his honour, continued writing a book of essays on what he considered to be the problems of the political right, both globally and in Canada, began planning a new text on the history and archaeology of Egypt, and translated some Middle Egyptian texts.
He was also showered with awards, including the Order of Canada, which Governor-General Michaëlle Jean presented to him in his hospital room in December of 2005. Although obviously frail, he was well enough in June of this year to attend convocation, where McGill president Heather Munroe-Blum appointed him James McGill Professor Emeritus of the university.
His final decline was swift. "We were getting out archaeology books from the McGill library within days of his death," said his daughter Rosalyn. She and her fiancé had been planning their wedding for December 2, which her father insisted should go ahead, no matter what was happening with his health. Her sister Isabel came from Vancouver with her family, including her infant daughter. But it was not to be. The wedding went ahead without the father of the bride.
Bruce Graham TRIGGER was born in Preston, Ontario, on June 18, 1937. He died of cancer at the Montreal General Hospital on December 1, 2006. He was 69. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, daughters Isabel and Rosalyn, and by his grandchildren David and Madeleine.
