Spouse: LANGELIER. LANGELIER and Louise DUNN were married about 1860.
Oscar DUNN was born on February 14, 1845 in Coteau-du-Lac, Québec, Canada East.604 He was educated at the Séminaire de Saint-Hyacinthe from 1855 to 1864 in St-Hyacinthe, Québec, British Territory. He was ill with a chronic infection which was probably tubercular after 1862. After 1863 he was a Journalist and Public Servant. While still at the seminary, Oscar Dunn contributed to Le Courrier de Saint-Hyacinthe, edited by Honoré Mercier. His schooling finished, he began legal training under Francis Cassidy and Charles-André Leblanc, his future father-in-law, but quickly abandoned law for journalism. In June 1866 he was editing Le Courrier de Saint-Hyacinthe and remained with the paper until March 1868, when he sailed for Europe to complete his training as a journalist. As Paris correspondent for La Minerve of Montreal, he sent articles recording the shifts of public opinion in France and telling readers as much about the Parisian way of life as about his own thinking. Like his predecessor Elzéar Gérin, he also contributed to the Liberal newspaper of Jean-Jacques Weiss, the Journal de Paris. The diocesan journal in Montreal, Le Nouveau Monde, expressed fear concerning the baneful influence of free-thinkers on the Canadian journalist. He suffered petty annoyances, such as insinuations in a series of articles that he was leading the Parisian life, and reproaches for the bantering and somewhat derisive tone of his articles. Having had enough of the study of free-thinking journalism, Dunn then turned to LUnivers (Paris) for which the ultramontane journalist Louis Veuillot invited him to write an article on Canadian literature, but the draft was abandoned half-way through. In December 1868 and the beginning of 1869 Dunn visited Rome and the Canadian Zouaves, whom he had dreamed of joining. He had an audience with Pope Pius IX, who urged him as a journalist to be upright at all times in order to avoid error. Refreshed by almost a year spent at the very sources of French culture and of Catholicism, Dunn returned to Canada. However, he did not receive the position that La Minerve had seemed willing to reserve for him and he remained only a contributor. In April 1870 he resumed the editorship of Le Courrier, but retired six months later because of a disagreement with Camille Lussier, the owner of that regional newspaper. The latter considered Dunn was not religiously minded enough for Le Courrier, and too readily accepted the French Republic. After Dunn had contributed sporadically over a lengthy period to the illustrated journal LOpinion publique (Montreal), he seriously thought of going to France, for Quebec journalism did not offer him secure employment. However, in September 1872 he agreed to join the editorial staff of La Minerve. He remained a member until the autumn of 1873, and then replaced Laurent-Olivier David* at LOpinion publique. In December 1874 Dunn abandoned the role of committed journalist and became co-owner of the Revue canadienne in Montreal, which he left a year later; shortly after, he became a civil servant. In the period preceding his trip to Europe in 1868, Dunn had not yet departed from conventional ideas; the views he expressed were fundamentally of a didactic and apologetical character and supported the ultramontane scheme. Dunns zeal to proselytize which was equalled only by his patriotic concern prompted him, among other things, to give a favourable press to the cause of the Zouaves and, almost without realizing what he was doing, to provoke a quarrel between Abbé Joseph-Sabin-Raymond of the Séminaire de Saint-Hyacinthe, and Louis-Antoine Dessaulles*, mainly about the participation of the teachers at the seminary in political struggles and in the editing of Le Courrier. In politics Dunn was dedicated to the cause of the Conservative party, which he never abandoned; he supported the new confederation by expressing anti-Americanism and a confusing mixture of religion with politics. Soon after his return from Europe the type of article for which he would develop a predilection began to appear under his signature: a short, concise, lively text, always urbane, sometimes humorous, and marked by a preference for reason over wit. Dunn discussed all the major questions of the day. To mention only the best known, these included the Pacific Scandal, the North West Territories, the New Brunswick schools question, and in particular the current politico-religious disputes. Dunn held certain ideas firmly, and these were in line with the stand he took in the name of union, order, and respect. Dunn had an intuitive grasp of the precarious balance of political and social forces. Whether it was the Métis cause, aversion to legislative union or annexation, the redefinition of colonial ties, the attempted amalgamation of the Institut Canadien of Montreal and the Institut Canadien-Français (Montreal), the political union of Catholic forces or that of political parties in Quebec a subject about which he made one of his most significant contributions to current political thought Dunn constantly attempted to define the roles and to ensure the survival of Catholic and French-speaking citizens. Religion and patrie: here was his leitmotiv, an inseparable pair. He was one of the first journalists to raise them to the level of values to be protected. Yet his conservatism in no way detracted from his lucidity. Before Benjamin Pâquet*, Joseph-Sabin Raymond, or Wilfrid Laurier*, he made needed distinctions in the unduly confused notion of liberalism; also he did not hesitate to call in question certain tenets which were not integral to it. He spoke readily of compulsory education and universal suffrage. In sum, Oscar Dunns thinking during his years as a journalist was that of a conservative with a mind open enough to understand new situations and to benefit from experience. Fascinated by politics, for him the logical outlet from journalism, Dunn twice entered the electoral fray. But he was inclined to be haughty, and failed to win the support of the voters in the constituency of Saint-Hyacinthe in 1872 or in Soulanges in 1875. The second defeat, which was appealed, was followed by another change in his career for Dunn left Montreal and went to Quebec, where as he said he found himself a public servant and happy. He succeeded Napoléon Legendre as editor of the official Journal de lInstruction publique (Quebec), and held the post until this pedagogical journal ceased publication in 1879. He then went into the secretariat of the Department of Public Instruction, taking Louis Giards post in 1882. Public service by no means consigned the former political journalist to oblivion. In 1876 he published Dix ans de journalisme and in 1878 Lecture pour tous, collections of the essays and articles he considered his best, drawn principally from La Minerve, the Revue canadienne, and LOpinion publique. In 1877, as a logical consequence of his enthusiasm for the teaching of drawing, he published a Manuel de dessin industriel à lusage des maîtres décoles primaires. As opportunity arose he wrote a small number of articles for the Journal de lÉducation, LOpinion publique, and the Nouvelles Soirées canadiennes, all published in Montreal. Only once, in 1882, did he attend the meetings of the Royal Society of Canada, of which he was a member, and he did not contribute to its work. Throughout his life he attached considerable importance to linguistic questions. This interest led in 1880 to the Glossaire franco-canadien, a work which despite imperfections was the first to point out the contribution made by French dialects to the French spoken in Canada. He was unable to complete a revised edition of this study: he died suddenly on 15 April 1885, at the age of 40, at the Garrison Club in Quebec. Beneath his aristocratic bearing, abrupt manner, ready sarcasm and irony, and dedication to serious study for example, to bibliophily this rather diminutive man hid a generous nature and a dry humour that delighted his friends, some of whom were the scholars of the time. His repartee and his anecdotes, deftly handled, seemed to be tossed off to see what effect they would have on his listeners.

Stuart Hunter DUNN1946 was born about 1849. He died. Parents: Timothy Hibbard DUNN and Margaret TURNER.
Timothy Hibbard DUNN was born between May 22, 1816 and May 23, 1816 in Ste-Ursule, Maskinongé, Québec, Lower Canada.1942 He lived at Crête-de-Coq in Maskinongé, Quebec, Lower Canada about 1820. After May 1841 he was a Clerk in Québec, Canada East. D. D. Calvin and Company. After December 2, 1844 he was a Partner. Calvin, Cook and Company in Kingston; Dunn, Calvin and Company in Quebec; and Hiram Cook and Company of Hamilton. During the 1840s the Quebec firm handled primarily the commercial aspects of the timber business. The company based at Garden Island concentrated on the forwarding of timber from the Great Lakes to Quebec, while also operating a shipyard. From 1844 the Hamilton firm handled the financing and management of the manufacturers of square timber and staves with whom the group of companies did business. Little of the timber handled by the firms was of their own manufacture; as merchants, however, they would often purchase the wood or deal with the manufacturer on joint account. The Quebec group provided the essential services of a commercial agency. They would arrange sales contracts for their own timber and that of their commission clients, draw advances upon the timber forwarded to Great Britain, handle the discounting of promissory notes, arrange the employment of skilled axemen for the shanties, sort, cull, measure, and load the timber arriving from Garden Island in the port of Quebec, and keep their partners and clients informed of the state of the trade in Quebec and in the British market. All three firms were involved in advancing funds to manufacturers for production. The square timber or staves were generally signed over as security; interest and commission on sales, discounting fees for any promissory notes, and fees for forwarding the timber to Quebec were charged against the account. Furthermore, the advances were often secured by a mortgage on the manufacturers farm, mill, or other property. Although timber was the principal commodity handled by the Quebec firm, accounts in pork, peas, salt, and cheese were occasionally opened. In 1849 there was even a small account opened, including advances and commission on sales, for a shipment of iron from Quebec to Cleveland, Ohio. Most of the business was conducted through contracts that reflect the integration of the services offered by each of the three firms involved in the Dunn, Calvin, and Cook partnership. Advances and commercial services were handled by the Hamilton and Quebec companies, and the timber was committed to the Garden Island firm to be forwarded to market in Quebec. This relationship provided considerable leverage in dealings with producers, leverage that was put to good use. The integration served, at least temporarily, to control the supply of timber in a trade recognized for its boom and bust cycles. For example, following the disastrous 1847 season, Dunn, Calvin and Company was instrumental in the formation of a cartel among oak producers to ensure such amount of Timber as the trade may require (at Moderate & remunerating prices) and no more. During the 1840s Timothy Hibbard Dunn had acquired an intimate knowledge of all aspects of the timber trade. In the early years he often spent time with clients along the St. Lawrence, with Calvin at Garden Island, with Hiram Cook and Company in Hamilton, and more than once he spent the winter season overseeing the activity in the shanties, verifying the quality and quantity of the production and the accounts of the manufacturers to whom he and his partners had advanced funds. After his brothers retirement from the business in 1846 he settled in Quebec as head of Dunn, Calvin and Company. Within the English-speaking business community there, he became a prominent figure, participating in public debate emanating from widespread concern over Quebecs future as a commercial centre during a particularly trying decade. The inadequacies of the transportation network serving the city in the age of rail and steam were particularly menacing. In 1845 Dunn was among the commercial figures pressing for improved ferry service between Pointe-Lévy (Lauzon and Lévis) and Quebec, and later that year he joined over 100 other businessmen to call, in the Quebec Mercury, for a public meeting to take into consideration the necessary measures to forward the proposed Rail-Road between Halifax and Quebec. Such a line would provide year-round access to Atlantic shipping. In an effort to improve local financial services, he was one of the subscribers behind the incorporation of the District Bank of Quebec in 1847, although this bank never opened for business. Elected to the council of the Quebec Board of Trade in 1850, Dunn continued to press for the completion of a rail line to Halifax. Domestic problems in transportation, however, were not the only clouds threatening the commercial future of the port of Quebec. With reductions in the protective tariff on timber in 1842 and the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846, Great Britain began to dismantle its mercantilist system of preferential treatment for the colonies, and turned resolutely towards free trade. In Canada this change in policy gave rise to a movement calling for annexation to the United States, and led to the Annexation Manifesto, issued in Montreal and signed by business and political leaders including Alexander Tilloch Galt, Luther Hamilton Holton, and John Rose. This sentiment was echoed in Quebec and Dunn was among those who, in October 1849, called a meeting of persons, who are in favour of a peaceable separation of Canada from Britain with a view to annexation to the United States. The timber trade was dependent on the imperial connection with Britain, however, and most of the key figures in it, including Peter Patterson, James Bell Forsyth, Charles Sharples, and George Burns Symes, signed a counter petition. The meeting was not a success according to the report in the Quebec Morning Chronicle. As the decade closed several factors were moving the partnership between Dunn, Calvin, and Cook towards dissolution. The division of responsibilities between the partners and the three respective firms became almost exclusive. Dunn handled all of the Quebec business, Hiram Cook ran the Hamilton firm and was moving into production on his own account, and Calvin concentrated on the business out of Garden Island. Furthermore, the late 1840s were difficult years for the timber trade in general, and losses due to failures among the firms Quebec clients cost the partners dearly. On 1 June 1850 the partnership between Dunn, Calvin, and Cook was dissolved, and Dunn announced in the Chronicle the opening of his own firm, in association with Willis A. Benson, under the name of Dunn and Company. Short-lived, this partnership was dissolved in December 1851, and Dunn continued alone until 1 Jan. 1853 when he brought in his brother Charles Edward. At the end of 1857, Timothy Hibbard alone took over the business under the name T. H. Dunn and Company. In December 1859 he made his clerk William Home a partner and the name of the firm was changed to Dunn and Home. This association proved to be a lengthy one, lasting until 1872. It was focused principally on the large commission business Dunn had built up in the timber trade but also extended into other activities. In 1860 the correspondent for R. G. Dun and Company, the New York-based agency which gathered and distributed mercantile credit information, spoke favourably of Dunn and Home: Timothy Hibbard Dunn [is] well known in our commercial community as a man of character and some means. Home is a young man and enjoys a good [character]. This firm is likely to do well. In 1861 and 1862 it was reported that their capital was moderate but that they did a legitimate business as brokers. Such observations at times went beyond the obvious concerns of capital and credit, and in reference to the partners character and experience it was noted that their ability was good, and that they were on the whole attentive. A cryptic reference to their temperate personal lives may be read into the remark that their habits were steady. By 1863 the business was considered large and the informant added that the two men were called well off credit good for their business wants. Dunn brought his two sons, Logie Henry and Stuart Hunter, into the business, and at the reorganization in 1872 the firm was taken over by them, although he continued to aid and assist them. He remained involved in the timber business in this informal capacity until his death in 1898. He died on July 2, 1898 in Ste-Pétronille, Île dOrléans, PQ, Canada.1942 Parents: Charles DUNN Jr. and Mary HIBBARD.
