Title
Figures de maires
Abstract
Includes a list of all mayors of Montreal from 1833 to 1954, along with birth dates, terms of office, and professions. A few biographical sketches are supplied, including that of Charles Wilson (1808-1877), mayor from 1851 to 1854, and his association with the 1853 "Gavazzi Riot". Five people were killed when protesters, mostly Irish Catholics who opposed the anti-Catholic lecture given by Alessandro Gavazzi in the city, tried to storm the hall where Gavazzi was speaking.
