British Aristocrats in Wartime Rideau Hall

Evening Series
Victor and Evie

Guest Speaker

Dorothy Phillips, author of "Victor and Evie"


Arriving in the midst of the Great War, Canada's new Governor General, Victor Cavendish, struggled to strike a new balance as Canadians, rapidly evolving from their colonial past, pushed hard for greater independence. Meanwhile, Lady Evelyn persevered with domestic matters such as ensuring propriety between her daughters and Rideau Hall's ever-present young aides-de-camp.

This speaker series will take place via Zoom. All are welcome to attend without charge.

Have a look at the HSO presentation by Dorothy Phillips about her novel 'Victor and Evie', the ninth Duke of Devonshire, his wife Lady Evelyn, and their time at Rideau Hall.
