Cat No.: CA0211:
A full and detailed account of the activities and contributions of this world famous university and those of its staff and students to the allied efforts through both World Wars.
The author, R. C. Fetherstonhaugh LL.D. is not only famous for his detailed and accurately reported military histories but he is also an alumni of the university itself. He has provided a fund of detailed information about the contribution of individuals and all those who could be named are recorded somewhere in the book. What makes this book so different however are the accounts of the contribution the university itself played in its research efforts both in developing new and improved weapons as well as, for example, developing new ways to produce food and means to combat the diseases and disabilities which always accompany a war.
The book also provides three appendices entitled Honor Roll, Honors and Awards, and List of Persons, which between them mention over 3,000 individuals (both men and women) ensuring that everyone who made a contribution to the war effort is recognized. Even without this though, if you have any sort of interest in the role McGill played in the World Wars you should have this book in your library.
You can see a free listing of the names in the book by clicking on the Persons List. We have also provided a freely downloadable sampler of the book as a whole so you can "browse before you buy." To reach this sampler click on the link Sampler. You can return to this page (the one you are reading) from either of these links by closing the linked page.
As useful as this book is on its own we have supplemented that usefulness in this CD edition by making the text fully searchable. Now you can go straight to your topic without having to read through many pages to get there.
This great book has been loaned to us by Marc Leroux. Marc has joined Chris Wight to undertake the mammoth task of making a biographical database of all the Canadians who took part in The Great War. This work will be underway for a long time, but the current data base contents have been made available and can be found at:
