Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan

Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan

Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan, (probably 27 February 179729 May, 1880) was a doctor and journalist.

Born in Mallow, County Cork, Ireland, he studied medicine in Paris and immigrated to Lower Canada in 1823 where he became involved in the political reform movement of the Parti patriote. He began practicing medicine in Montreal as of 1827.

On the death of Daniel Tracey, owner of the "Montreal Vindicator" newspaper, in 1832 O'Callaghan became the editor and brought in Thomas Storrow Brown to work on the paper. They proved to be an irreducible adversary of Lord Gosford and the status quo. In 1834, O'Callaghan was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada for Yamaska.

In 1837, during the Lower Canada Rebellion, a mandate of arrest was issued against him, and he sought refuge at Saint-Denis, then crossed the United States border with his friend, Louis-Joseph Papineau. Later, O'Callaghan became secretary-archivist of the State of New York, and died there in 1880.
