Biography / Administrative history

Prime Minister of Canada

Wilfrid Laurier was born at St-Lin, Quebec. He attended l'Assomption College and McGill University. He practised law in Montreal from 1864 to 1866 and in Arthabaska from 1867 to 1896. A radical Liberal in his early years, Laurier was a member of L'Institut Canadien and editor of a liberal newspaper "Le Défricheur", 1866-1867.

Laurier was never actively engaged in business but he held directorships in a few companies including the Royal Mutual Life Insurance Company and the Ontario Mutual Life Insurance Company. He married Zoé Lafontaine in 1868; they had no children.

In 1871, Laurier was elected to the Quebec Legislative Assembly, representing Drummond-Arthabaska. In 1874, he resigned his seat and was elected to represent the same constituency in the House of Commons. Defeated in a by-election in 1877 when he was appointed to the Cabinet, Laurier won a seat in Quebec East which he represented continuously until his death forty-two years later. In 1887 he became leader of the Liberal Party. He was Prime Minister of Canada from 11 July 1896 to 9 October 1911. This was a period of prosperity and important national development. After his defeat as Prime Minister in 1911, Laurier remained leader of the Liberal Party until his death on 17 February 1919.

Additional information

Custodial history
The greater part of Laurier's papers (volumes 1-806, 833-1006, 1008-1023 and microfilm reels C-371 to C-373) was acquired before 1951. In 1925, Laurier's nephew, Robert Laurier, deposited in the Public Archives of Canada the Laurier Papers in his possession. In 1938, these papers were officially acquired. A portion of the papers, however, had been left with O.D. Skelton for his use while he was preparing the biography "The Life and Letters of Sir Wilfrid Laurier" (1921).
These remained in the possession of the Skelton family and were placed in the Library of Queen's University. In 1951, they were transferred to the Archives through the co-operation of Mrs. Skelton and Queen's University. In 1961, letters damaged by water (pages 224326-226974) were arranged in chronological order and were microfilmed (C-371 to C-373) after which the originals were destroyed.
In 1973, volumes 791A-791M were made from prints of these microfilms and volumes 1-791 were microfilmed and photocopied for consultation. Since 1954, documents from various sources have been acquired. Family papers were acquired in 1954-1958 (volumes 807-812). Family papers were acquired from Henri Laurier in 1967 (volume 813) and in 1971 (volumes 814A and 814B). Photocopies of volumes 814A and 814B were made for consultation.
Clippings, scrapbooks and addresses were transferred from Laurier House in 1967 (volumes 815-826) and in 1976 (volume 1024). In 1967-1973, photocopies from originals held by the Laurier Museum, Arthabaska, Quebec were acquired (volumes 827-831). Three letters from Edward Blake to Laurier were transferred from the F.H. Underhill Papers in 1973 (volume 832). Miscellaneous documents were acquired from 1973 to 1984 (volume 832 and volume 1007, files 1-11).
Documents were transferred to the Archives through Queen's University from the Robert Nixon Papers in 1988 (volume 1007, files 12-25).
There are two gaps in the Laurier papers. There are almost no copies of letters written by Laurier until 1898, when typed carbon copies began to be retained. It seems probable that copies of the earlier letters were in letterbooks that have since disappeared.
Copies of letters sent, December 1877 to July 1878, have been found (volume 831). Laurier's Leader of the Opposition Office in the Parliament Buildings was destroyed by the fire of February 1916, with the loss of nearly all Laurier's papers for the years 1912-1915.
Additional material was donated in 1995 by Gordon V. Tunnoch (vol. 832)
