Mary Mack at Queen Coronation 1953

"...so well known was she for her work in one organization after another - on all levels...that many a Cornwallite, on meeting a stranger anywhere across the land has been confronted with one such remark:

"Oh...you're from Cornwall; you must know Mary Mack!"                                                  Emily MacInnes, 1979

Discover the life and times of Mary Mack (1899-1978), first female alderman for Cornwall, Ontario.


Within the social context of the Great Depression, World War II and the St. Lawrence Seaway and Hydro Project, learn how she worked tirelessly to improve the community she loved. A passionate historian she also revived the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Historical Society, her own roots going back to the first settlers of those counties.


Mary Mack chose a life of service, but she was also an artist who had studied in Paris, and a socialite who was part of the national and international scenes. 


Excerpts from her own correspondence add depth to the persona.
