Cormack, William Eppes
TitleCormack, William Eppes
Scope and Content of FondsThis copy of a pencil drawing of William Eppes Cormack is the only known portrait of a man whose thirst for adventure took him from Newfoundland to Australia, New Zealand, California and British Columbia. It is a portrait of Cormack late in his life, probably after he had settled in British Columbia in the 1860s. It is quite a contrast to the image one gets, after reading of Cormack's exploits, of the young man who walked across the interior of Newfoundland in 1822.
