In preparing a new and revised edition of Professor Leacock’s Baldwin, LaFontaine and Hincks, I have endeavoured as far as possible to preserve the spirit and form of the original work. The most important changes are: First, at the request of the General Editors, I have extended the account of William Lyon Mackenzie for reasons pointed out in the General Preface to the Series; secondly, the survey of the earlier part of Bagot’s régime has been completely changed in order to present his constitutional experiment from a detailed study of his correspondence, which unfortunately is not yet known in extenso to students and readers of history. I wish to thank Professor Leacock for his courteous permission to deal as I wished with his work and for his kindness during the process of revision. I am indebted to Principal Grant for more help than I can adequately acknowledge... [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Leacock, Stephen Butler
Stephen Leacock (1869-1944) was a Canadian author. Born in England, his family moved to Canada when he was six years old. The family settled in Sutton, Ontario on the south shore of Lake Simcoe. A bright student, he went to Upper Canada College where he was top of his class. After a brief stint at teaching (which he loathed) he eventually went on to become chair of the Department of Economics and Political Science at McGill University. Although he wrote several books on these august subjects, he is best known for his light satirical and humorous writing, in particular, "Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town".
