Marc Boileau is a biologist in the Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology at the University of Guelph and an expert on the genetics of
arctic invertebrate populations. He is also a software engineer, entrepreneur and history enthusiast.
Dr. Boileau has published numerous research and popular articles. His book, Towers of Time: Ontario (Looking Back Press), examines the
post-Confederation inventory of Post Office buildings in Ontario. Their design styles vary considerably but reflect some common themes. The book and
his slide shows link their histories and styles. Nationally, he has a nearly complete photographic collection of post-Confederation Post Offices.
