Title
A ‘Christian Businessman’ in the Eastern Townships: The Convergence of Precept and Practice in Nineteenth-Century Evangelical Gender Construction
Abstract
A case study of the business and family life of Charles C. Colby (1827-1907), a prominent Eastern Townships’ lawyer, entrepreneur, Methodist layman and federal politician. The author tests the extent to which an ideal religious construct both influenced and was in turn influenced by the reality of economic and family concerns.
