A History of Allan Grant (1745–1821)
and his descendants
Grants have found themselves at the centre of North America’s historical events. They survived the Great Depression, and fought in the two World Wars. They’ve mixed with movie stars and industrial magnates.
Craig Elachie captures some of the Grant family stories.
It is so very appropriate that Jean Vivian Grant is profiled at the very heart of this book. Though she never married or had children of her own, the Grant family was at the core of everything Jean did.
Years of her life were devoted to collecting these stories, and creating new ones through her reunions and family gatherings.
The publication of this book was among her final wishes.
May it help to keep Jean’s enthusiasm, and love of family, alive.
