He was born at Takayama, Japan, the son of Canadian Methodist missionaries. He was graduated from the University of British Columbia, studied at Oxford University in England as a Rhodes scholar and obtained his doctorate at Cornell University. Mr. Coates came to the University of Rochester in 1925 as an instructor. He was appointed an associate professor in 1933 and full professor in 1947. He retired in 1965. He was co-founder of the "Journal of British Studies" and its editor from 1960 to 1970. Mr. Coates was the author of "The Journal of Sir Simonds D'Ewes" and co-author of a two-volume intellectual history of the West: "The Emergence of Liberal Humanism" and "The Ordeal of Liberal Humanism." He wrote 74 book' reviews, numerous articles and chapters or introductions for several books. Richard W. Kaeupur, chairman of the university's history department, said; "His distinguished scholarship and teaching were an important part of the intellectual life of the history department and the university. Perhaps the most eloquent tribute was a comment from a former student that 'Professor Coates never ceased to grow.'
