Title
A Tale of Two Cities: Montreal and the Smallpox Epidemic of 1885
Abstract
According to the author, "anglophones and middle-class French-Canadians" in Montreal generally feared the smallpox epidemic of 1885 and took precautions against it. On the other hand, he contends that "lower-class French Canadians" generally tolerated the disease and eschewed precautions.
