A Landmark Publication
A bit of good news: the author’s advance copies of the two-volume scholarly history have just arrived. Whom Fortune Favours: The Bank of Montreal and the Rise of North American Finance has arrived on the eve of Publication Day, 16 April 2020. The book is now available for pre-order here at Chapters Indigo and Amazon.com.
The publication marks the culmination of an intensive eight-year journey in one of Canada’s most important historical research projects. The book draws on tens of thousands of archival documents, interviews and other materials to create a definitive portrait of Canada’s First Bank from 1817 onwards. The result is a sustained and wide-ranging examination of a Canadian corporate icon. Dr. Mussio reflected on the arrival of these volumes, especially in this dangerous time.
