As an English professor and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Victoria, Samuel L. Macey developed an expertise in Restoration and 18th century literature. He edited numerous titles, including a study of Robertson Davies' Deptford Trilogy. One of his scholarly works that became a trade title was Money and the Novel: Mercenary Motivation in Defoe and His Immediate Successors (Sono Nis, 1983). Fascinated by time, he published Clocks and the Cosmos: Time in Western Life and Thought (Archon) and was a member of the British Horological Institute. He was the inspiration for a commemorative volume entitled Time, Literature and the Arts: Essays in Honor of Samuel L. Macey (English Literary Studies, University of Victoria, 1994).
