MULHALL, David




Author Tags: Biography

David Mulhall, as a teacher in the history department of Dawson College in Westmount, Quebec, wrote Will to Power: The Missionary Career of Father Morice (UBC Press, 1986). "Extraordinarily vain and egotistical, Morice was obsessed with gaining power and recognition as a missionary, explorer, and Indian expert. With his native intelligence and boundless energy and determination, he built a veritable kingdom for himself in northern B.C. However, his rebellious and erratic behaviour finally led to a conflict with his superiors, as David Mulhall points out in this fascinating account of a very atypical Oblate missionary." -- UBC Press publicity
