Pádraig Ó Siadhail
Archives of Canadian Arts, Culture, and Heritage
A member of the Irish Catholic community in Emerald, Prince Edward Island, Katherine Hughes (1876-1925) travelled far and accomplished much during her short life. Her career was varied and eventful: a teacher in a Native school; a journalist (Montreal Star); a biographer (Archbishop Cornelius O'Brien; Father Albert Lacombe; Sir William Van Horne); private secretary to Alberta's second Premier; Alberta's first provincial archivist; and most importantly, Irish political activist in support of Eamon de Valera and the cause of Irish independence. Hughes' travels took her across Canada, to Europe, including Ireland, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. In this book, Pádraig Ó Siadhail charts Katherine Hughes' physical journeys and discusses the challenges of understanding Hughes' internal journeys from Canadian political insider in the era before female suffrage to Irish political outsider.
