The Pat Evans (Skipper's) Corner

Patrick Michael Oldfield Evans, known as Pat, or by local sailors as "Skipper", was a transplanted Brit who immigrated to Canada in 1928 at the age of 15 and died in Wakefield in 1999. A writer and historian, he established the archives of the Historical Society of the Gatineau, as it was then known, and later became its honorary archivist. The Pat Evans Corner honours his contribution to the Society and showcases some of his local research and writing. See article Archivist's lifetime work honors the Outaouais by Bob Phillips.
