Quick Reference

(1826–1906). Born in Quebec City, Langevin became a lawyer and journalist, but it was his 40-year political career that made him well known. A moderate reformer and then a liberal-conservative of the George-Étienne Cartier school, he was primarily interested in national politics even while serving as alderman (1856) and mayor of Quebec City (1858–61).
