The Call to Arms: Montreal's Roll of Honor, 1914. William Mills. (1914)The preface to this book provides it's own description of the aims and objectives of its publication:
"THE CALL TO ARMS is the work of a few Montreal citizens who, with the aid of many friends, took upon themselves to endeavor to produce a tangible record of the manifold and splendid ways in which Montrealers, military and civil, have served their Country and their Empire during the last five months of 1914. Their first object was to record these facts; secondly, their desire was to serve the Montreal Patriotic Fund by turning over to its treasurer the proceeds of the publication, above the actual net cost of production and distribution. ... " The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
