Paul Litt & Christine Jackson, Authors, 'Phyllis Turner Ross: Career Woman and Single Mother', Bytown Pamphlet Series #120

Less known is the story of his remarkable mother, Phyllis Gregory Turner Ross, a single mother who came to Ottawa in the 1930s looking for work to support her two children... and worked her way up to become the highest-ranking woman in Canada's wartime civil service.
