Biographical history

Angelo Principe was born in Delianuova, Reggio Calabria, Italy on 10 July 1930. He immigrated to Canada in 1957, settling in Toronto. He was a newspaper editor, a union activist, a member of the New Democratic Party (NDP), a supporter of the Waffle movement, an instructor of Italian culture, and a researcher of Italian Canadian social history. While working as a sales representative for Tre Stelle Cheese, Principe contributed to various Italian Canadian newspapers in the 1960s and was a founding editor of the Italian Canadian newspaper, Forze Nuove which was published from 1972 to 1982. He was a key figure in the Italian community in Toronto in the 1970s and 1980s for his support of various unions and political organizations, including the Associazione Democratica Italo-Canadese (ADI), which was the Italian wing of the NDP. Principe unsuccessfully ran in the riding of Davenport during the provincial election of 1972. Principe earned a B.A. in 1972, an M.A. in 1975, and a Ph.D. in 1989, all from the University of Toronto (U of T). He was an instructor of Italian culture at both U of T and York University and is now retired. Principe researched various aspects of Italian Canadian history and culture, publishing two books and many essays in both Italian and English publications.
