In April of 1919, Mrs. W.T.
Hallam, B.A. presented a paper, “Slave Days in Canada,” to the Women’s Canadian Historical
Society, the text of which was printed in The Canadian Churchman, and then reprinted as a
stand-alone essay. “There was no Harriet Beecher Stowe,” Hallam began, “To tell the story of
slavery in Canada, and few Canadian histories make any reference to the subject, so that many of
our people have never heard of this by-gone institution.”18
