Redpath Men

[ Bookplate, McGill University Library ]

Unknown, Rare Books and Special Collections Division, McGill University Library, Lady Roddick is one of the important donors to the McGill University Library collections. This bookplate memorializes her two brothers who died at the beginning of the twentieth century, Peter Whitemore Redpath and Jocelyn Clifford Redpath

Two generations of Redpath men figure in this mystery. Peter Redpath, philanthropist and business man, was something of a father figure to his nephews Peter, Reginald, Harold, and Clifford. We associate the Redpath men not only with their stately residence, but with a series of commercial and cultural establishments in Montreal.
