Louis-Alexandre Taschereau
Birth: Mar. 5, 1867
Capitale-Nationale Region
Quebec, Canada
Death: Jul. 6, 1952
Capitale-Nationale Region
Quebec, Canada

14th Premier of Quebec. A member of the Quebec Liberal Party, he served in this position from July 1920 until June 1936. Born in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, his father was a lawyer and a judge. He attended Laval University in Quebec City where he graduated with a law degree and was admitted to the bar in July 1889. He then practiced law and entered politics in December 1900 when he was elected to the Quebec Legislative Assembly from the Montmorency district, serving until August 1936. From 1907 until 1919 he was the Minister of Public Works. In July 1920 he elected Premier, replacing Lomer Gouin. During his tenure, he encouraged the development of private enterprise of the natural resources in the province, established a government monopoly on the sale of alcohol, established a Jewish board to guarantee Jewish participation of the Quebec Council of Public Instruction (later repealed), and created the Beaux-Arts schools in Quebec City and Montreal and subsidized their scientific and literary works. Towards the end of his premiership, the radical left wing of his Liberal Party broke away and formed a new party, the Action Liberale Nationale. When the Legislative Accounts Committee uncovered that his brother Antoine had deposited the interest on Legislative Assembly funds into his personal bank account, he resigned and was replaced by Adélard Godbout. After he left office, he served on numerous major financial institution and insurance boards. Among his awards include the French Legion of Honor, the Belgian Order of Leopold, and the Belgian Order of the Crown. He died in Quebec City at the age of 85. (bio by: William Bjornstad)
