Title
Sir William Logan and the Economic Development of Canada
Abstract
In 1843, the Montreal-born William Edmund Logan (1798-1875) was hired to undertake a geological survey of Lower Canada and Upper Canada. The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), based in Montreal from 1843 until 1881, evolved from this position. Logan served as the director of the GSC until 1870. The author examines how the GSC, under Logan's direction, yielded important economic and other benefits in mineral discoveries and developments.
