Samuel Bingham - King of the Cascades
by Karen Bingham & Pauline Masson
A well-researched biography on lumberman Samuel Bingham (1845-1905) is now available for sale by the GVHS. Known as the “King of the Cascades” because of his skills on the river, Bingham was a larger-than- life personality linked to the final days of the lumber boom. The book includes details on how Bingham tragically lost his life in a drowning accident in the Gatineau River. He was also well-known in his day as a political leader (once the City of Ottawa Mayor) and philanthropist. Written and published by Karen Bingham and Pauline Masson.
