The publication will present, over 200 years, the accomplishments great or small of notable people who are from Lanark County Ontario, Canada, or have spent a large part or formative part of their career in the county’s history and social life. From Lords and Ladies, Chiefs and Princess, to the founding fathers of Government Policy and Practices, members of House of Commons, premiers, mayors, and early settlers to nightclub owners, shady low-profiles to sports heroes. Particular emphasis has been placed on reflecting the county’s rich dimensions of diversity, and on including men and women who were notable in their own day but have now been forgotten. It will be an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and general readers interested in Lanark County Ontario Canada history.
