Ward Kaiser, Bio

Ward Kaiser's background includes experience as a publisher, business and ecumenical executive, pastor, teacher and community organizer. He introduced the Peters Projection World Map to North America, publishing its first English-language version in 1983. His handbook to that map, A New View of the World, is widely used by high school and college teachers, mission educators and social activists. His sixth book, Seeing Through Maps, has recently been updated and in its third edition. Kaiser points out, "Maps have played a major role in each of my occupations. An understanding of maps enriches every one of these fields—just as it can enrich your life.”

Kaiser has made guest appearances on National Public Radio, NBC-TV, CBC-Radio and -Television, Vision TV as well as many local media outlets in Canada and the United States. He has lectured extensively at colleges and universities and led worldview workshops and professional development seminars. Even in "retirement" he maintains a busy schedule of lecturing and writing. Kaiser has also translated or co-translated several works on cartography into English. His editorial and publishing background continues to be called upon through consulting services to several publishing enterprises in Europe and the United States.

A graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, and of Union Theological Seminary, New York, Kaiser has pursued further graduate studies in history, education, cultural anthropology, theology, economics and business administration. Kaiser’s community activities have included fair access to housing for all, Scouting and other youth programs, work with blind and visually impaired persons, intercultural relations and political action for peace and justice.

In his spare time he enjoys cycling. Recently, accompanied by his son, he completed a bike tour in France, following the same route—and using the same, well-worn Michelin map—he had taken 50 years earlier. When not traveling, Kaiser and his wife, Lorraine, live in central Florida and the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario. A British subject by birth, he now enjoys dual citizenship in Canada and the USA and strives to maintain an inclusive view as a world citizen. He may be reached at newmapper@aol.com.
