Alex B. Campbell: the Prince Edward Island premier who rocked the cradle

Front Cover
Robertson Library, University of Prince Edward Island, Nov 19, 2014 - Biography & Autobiography - 410 pages
This book 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.
