Early History of the C.P.R. Road by Walter Moberly
A History of the Canadian Pacific Railway by Harold Adams Innis
To celebrate Canada Day on July 1, we feature two works that tell the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Canada's first transcontinental railway. The C.P.R. was originally built between 1881 and 1885, with the goal of uniting the Eastern and Western parts of the country.
Walter Moberly was a civil engineer and surveyor who played a vital role in the development of British Columbia. He discovered Eagle Pass, through which the C.P.R eventually travelled. His 1909 monograph, Early History of the C.P.R., includes his reflections on the building of the railway.
Innis College at the University of Toronto is named for Harold Adams Innis, who was a professor of political economy there. A History of the Canadian Pacific Railway, published in 1923, was actually his Ph.D. thesis. It is a detailed and comprehensive volume that attempts, in the author's own words, “to trace the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway from an evolutionary and scientific point of view.”
