Edwin Faint has been a schoolteacher since leaving Kelvin Grove Teachers College in 1952.

He has an Associate of Education, a Bachelor of Arts and a Graduate Diploma of Teacher Librarianship. He became a Teacher/Librarian in the years before his retirement. His interest in words led to a life-long interest in crosswords, and he has spent many years compiling The Ultimate Crossword Dictionary into the most detailed and comprehensive book of its type—certainly in Australia and possibly the world.
