Paul Anthony Wilson Wallace, Ph.D., was a Canadian ethnographer who focused on the natives of Pennsylvania, New York, and Canada as well as the Pennsylvania German culture. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto but emigrated to the United States to teach English literature at Lebanon Valley College. There, he developed an interest in the native people and regional history. He wrote extensively about native culture and the trails via which they traded and communicated. While doing so, he was introduced to the story of Conrad Weiser and the Pennsylvania German culture. Wallace’s biography of Weiser is viewed by many as the most accepted and widely cited.
