New Releases - November 2014

Now available in a variety of new formats, Alex B. Campbell: The Prince Edward Island Premier Who Rocked The Cradle tells the story of Alex B. Campbell, Prince Edward Island's longest-serving premier (1966-78) and the youngest person elected first minister in Canada in the 20th century. He led his province through a period of transformative change and stepped down in 1978 without ever having suffered electoral defeat. This is a come-the-moment, come-the-leader story with few parallels in Canadian history.

"Alex Campbell's ability to determine beginning patterns in an otherwise random mass of events was the quality that enabled him to preside so competently over the great changes that took place during those years."

Dr. John Maloney, Minister of Industry, Health, Social Services and Development, 1970-79
