Notes; Selected Bibliography; Index
[The Last Suffragist Standing] makes a valuable contribution to the wider historiography of women's political activities in Canada and to British Columbia politics in general. Jamieson would undoubtedly be pleased with this study of her life and times. -- Patricia Roy, author and professor emeritus of History at the University of Victoria * The Ormsby Review *
