BULL, William Perkins

Regular price $50.00 Sale

The quintessential "Renaissance man," William Perkins Bull practiced law, was an astute businessman, advised politicians on national affairs, and was an avid Freemason who served as Master of an important lodge. In 1931, Bull was involved in a serious car accident. During his convalescence, he decided to try his hand at writing a brief family history to help pass the time. That was when the William Perkins Bull Historical Series was born. Bull's many-volumed series was published between 1931 and 1941. This military history volume begins with the pioneer militia but spends most of its time discussing the Canadians who fought World War I. Sections written by Archibald Cameron Macdonell, Thomas L. Kennedy, Roy F. Farrand, R. V. Conover, T. V. Anderson, and Hanford MacNider. Appendices, bibliography, index at rear.
