Frank Hawkins Underhill (1889 - 1971) was a journalist, essayist, historian, social critic and political thinker. He taught history at the University of Saskatchewan from 1914 to 1927 (with an interruption during World War One where he served as an officer on the Western Front for the British), and the University of Toronto from 1927 to 1955. He taught afterwards at Carleton University, where he became Chair of the Department of History. During the Great Depression, Underhill joined several other left wing academics in forming the League for Social Reconstruction. He was also a founder of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and helped write its Regina Manifesto in 1933. He joined the editorial staff of the leftist Canadian Forum in 1927. He published books of essays throughout the 1950s and ‘60s, and, in 1967, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.
