Faculty of Education
1977 - 2012'
A former undergraduate (BEd’70), a young lecturer (1973), Assistant Professor (1975) and Full Professor (1977 – 2012) at the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE) , Professor Greg Reid literally “wrote the book” on our history. Indeed, Professor Reid produced a book on the history of our department in preparation for KPE’s 100-year anniversary in 2012/13 titled “From Bloomers to Body Mass index: 100 years of Kinesiology and Physical Education at McGill”, commemorating this occasion. The book serves many purposes for our department such as a time capsule and a thank-you gift to our partners, amongst others.
In addition, while an active researcher, Professor Reid made a significant impact worldwide in the field of adapted and inclusive physical activity and education. His contribution to the field has been recognized by the G. Lawrence Rarick Memorial Lecturer, International Federation of Adapted Physical Activity. He is also an emeritus editor of the Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly.
