Title
Patrician Elites and Power in Nineteenth-Century Montreal and Quebec City
Abstract
The author explains how patriarchy was a central force in both domestic and public life among nineteenth century Montreal's and Quebec City's elites. Following the ascent of two families, the French-speaking Catholic Taschereaus of Quebec City and the English-speaking Anglican McCords of Montreal, he shows how the strategies of these two families extended into the marrow of Quebec society through moral authority, influence on national identities, and positions within senior offices in religious, judicial, and university institutions.
