Title
Location, Location, Location: David Ross McCord and the Making of Canadian History
Abstract
The author examines the role of place in the creation of personal and public memory, as exemplified by Montreal's McCord Museum, founded in 1921. The museum's founder, David Ross McCord (1844-1930), sought to promote a version of Canadian history in which family and personal myth were conflated with that of nation.
