Robert Bond

A Political Biography

Author/Illustrator/Editor: James K. Hiller

Elected to Newfoundland’s House of Assembly in 1882, Robert Bond served as a member of government and opposition—and notably as prime minister—in an era filled with challenges that still resonate today. During three turbulent decades, St. John’s burned down, the banks failed, and the drive for economic diversification caused difficult problems. In this in-depth examination, Hiller explores the stakes, the rivalries and the competing visions at play during the period, and he highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the man who was often at centre stage: Bond, politician, leader, and patriot.
