History Biographical: 

Born in Noranda, Quebec, Leslie E. Peterson (1928 November 4-2002 July) was an Anglican priest and served as the Eighth Bishop of the Diocese of Algoma (1983-1994). Peterson earned a bachelor of arts degree at the University of Western Ontario in 1952 and received a licentiate in theology from Huron College in 1954. He was ordained as a deacon in 1954 and became a priest in 1955.

Bishop Leslie PetersonHe was first posted to All Saints Church in Coniston, Ontario where he served five years. His next postings were in Elliot Lake and North Bay, where he attended teachers' college. Peterson was elected Co-adjutor Bishop of Algoma in 1983 and later earned a doctorate in Sacred Theology from Thorneloe University in Sudbury. As diocesan, he identified with people who were struggling and, therefore, worked with youth, native issues and women's ministries. He established a youth synod in 1985 and said the annual event was a highlight of his ministry.

Peterson moved to London, Ontario on his retirement, where he remained active as a volunteer with the Daily Bread food bank and performed interim ministry within the Diocese of Huron. He was laid to rest in London, Ontario in July 2002.

Scope Content: 

Fonds comprises records documenting the career of Bishop Peterson. Includes submissions to the diocesan newspaper, the "Algoma Anglican" for 1988-1994, correspondence, episcopal sermons, and other materials.
