Library and Archives Canada Online Exhibit About Sir John A. Macdonald

Library and Archives Canada has a new online exhibit devoted to the life and career of one of the architects of Confederation, Canada’s first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald:

“As well as presenting an exhibition of photographs, documentary art and other unique records held at Library and Archives Canada, this Web project introduces tens of thousands of pages from Macdonald’s political papers and correspondence that will be made available online for the first time in 2008, enabling all Canadians to learn about Macdonald’s life, career and legacy.”

It is also possible to read his biography in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, also on the website of Library and Archives Canada.
