DCB Biography of the Week: James Richardson 1885-1939

24 07 2013

The Dictionary of Canadian Biography recently received an infusion of cash from the Canadian government to allow it to modernize its website. The new website has a feature called biography of the week. A number of the recent biographies have been of businessmen, which is a reminder of what a great resource the DCB is for business historians. 

This week’s biography is of James Richardson, a Kingston-born entrepreneur who relocated to Winnipeg and played an important role in the development of several industries. This biography was written by Jamie Benidickson of the University of Ottawa.
