Abstract

This monograph has a two-fold objective. Fundamentally it is a historical inquiry of a general nature into the origins and growth of the former Town of Walkerville which was amalgamated into the present City of Windsor in 1935. Secondly, it is an attempt to assess the influence of Hiram Walker, from whom Walkerville derived its name, and his sons, in the evolution and ultimate development of the town from a sparsely populated settlement to a flourishing industrial enterprise.
