Loyola and Montreal, A History by T.P. Slattery


Loyola and Montreal, A History by T.P. Slattery


Old Montreal appears throughout in her rich, primary colours – with the early Irish, the generous Italians, the plague of ship fever, the sacrifices of the Sulpicians, the beginnings of St Patrick’s and St. Ann’s, the Gavazzi Riot, the Guibord affair, the Jesuit Estates and McGill, the Shamrocks and the Stanley Cup…The book is brimming over with many good stories.
On Loyola, the story ranges from football to dramatics, from journalism to jug, and finally concentrates in the chapter “New Visions”, on the strength of Loyola’s recent academic growth. Threads of this history run through four prominent families, the Drummonds, the Dohertys, the Hingstons, and the Vaniers. Each one is intimately linked with the College, especially that of the Governor General of Canada, Loyola’s most eminent graduate.
