Nova Scotia, James McGregor Stewart, corporate lawyer, legal history


Barry Cahill, senior government archivist at Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management, and former editor of the Nova Scotia Historical Review, has painstakingly delved into the social, political, educational and legal atmosphere of the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth centuries in Nova Scotia, by researching and writing a fascinating biography of James McGregor Stewart, now published on behalf of the Osgoode Society. The book succeeds in portraying both the humanity of this Renaissance man and his pivotal role in so many different milieux, such that Canadian Lawyer could and would refer to him as the most influential corporate lawyer in twentieth-century Canada.
