New Canadian Encyclopedia Article: David Ross McCord

My new article in the Historica Canada Canadian Encyclopedia is about David Ross McCord, lawyer, alderman, military officer, collector and museum founder. McCord amassed a collection of roughly 15,000 artifacts related to Indigenous peoples and Canadian history and culture, which he presented to McGill University in 1919. The collection was made accessible to the public with the opening of the McCord National Museum in 1921 (now part of the McCord Stewart Museum in Montreal).
