Title: The Politics of Commemoration and the Failure of the Davin Memorial Project (Bytown Pamphlet No. 97)
Author name: Mathew Moore
ISBN: 978-0-920960-40-0
Publisher: The Historical Society of Ottawa
Publication date: January 2016
Format: Paperback, 44 pages
Description: When he died in 1901, Nicholas Flood Davin was eulogised as a prominent Irish-Canadian lawyer, journalist and politician; compared to Robert Burns for his literary contributions and praised as a champion of Women's Suffrage and sectarian peace among Irish-Canadians. Today Davin is best remembered as the author of The Davin Report, a document which recommended the creation of the infamous Residential School system. This historical pamphlet attempts to examine the reasons why the creators of Davin's memorial failed to control public perception of this historical figure.
