New Canadian Encyclopedia Article: Victor Cavendish, 9th Duke of Devonshire

My most recent article in the Historica Canada Canadian Encyclopedia is about Victor Christian William Cavendish, 9th Duke of Devonshire, Governor General of Canada (1916–1921) and politician. The Duke of Devonshire took a strong interest in the development of Canadian agriculture and established the Duke of Devonshire Trophy for the Ottawa Horticultural Society. As Governor General, the Duke of Devonshire hosted the Prince of Wales (the future King Edward VIII) at Rideau Hall in 1919 and the article includes photographs from the royal tour.
