Title
'She must not stir out of a darkened room': The Redpath Mansion Mystery
Abstract
An examination of the private life of a prominent turn-of-the-century Montreal family as revealed in the sudden glare of publicity generated by a violent double shooting. On June 13, 1901, Ada Redpath and her son Clifford, members of one of the wealthiest families of the day, were shot dead in their Montreal mansion. The authors examine how Amy Redpath, daughter and sister of the two murdered people, deployed architecture (the Redpath mansion) in the interplay of inter-connected social relationships and behaviour following the deaths.
