|Gérald L. Gold (1945- ) was born in Canada and educated there and in the United States, obtaining his PhD from the University of Minnesota (1972). Following teaching assignments at Guelph and Laval universities (1970-1975), he joined the Department of Anthropology at York (1976) and served as department chair (1984-1987).
