Title: Untitled – Letter Hugh Dempsy to James Brady
Creator: Hugh Dempsy
Subject: First Nations, Papasschayo, First Nations, Spiritualism, Resistance, 1885, Garneau, Laurent
Description: In this letter, the Alberta historian Hugh Dempsey is rejecting James Brady’s manuscript “The Wisdom of Papasschayo” for publication in “Alberta History” because of what he felt were numerous factual errors. At report of the rejection was Brady’s reliance on his family’s oral history and Dempsey’s reliance on printed documents – the two didn’t corroborate each other. Brady’s manuscript, “The Wisdom of Papasschayo” appears in this section. This letter is part of the James Brady Papers, which were donated to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in the 1990s by author and activist, Murray Dobbin. Dobbin used this collection to write his book about James Brady and Malcolm Norris entitled “The One-And-A-Half Men: The Story of Jim Brady & Malcolm Norris, Metis Patriots of the 20th Century”. Transcribed by David Morin and edited by Christine Charmbury and Darren R. Préfontaine. This document has been re-transcribed from the original and includes all spelling and grammatical errors.
