Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper had the Tupper courage, the Tupper eloquence, and the family concern for the glory of Tupperdom. He was energetic, talented, quick to seize a point, and almost as quick to take offence. He can be said to have been incorruptible, provided it be understood that with Tupper patronage was politics, not a form of corruption. That was the way political business was done in Canada, then and for a long time to come. Tupper contracted pneumonia in March 1927 and died on the 30th at his home in Vancouver. He was interred in Ocean View Burial Park, Burnaby. Dictionary of Canadian Biography. Vol XV (1921-30). Charles Hibbert Tupper.
He died at the age of 71.
*A comparison of the man who appears in both images led me to the conclusion that, assuming the one in this post is Sir CHT, that the man in my earlier, ‘Fearless Loathing‘, post was the same fellow. The face is in shadow above, but the clothing (with the exception of the hat, which was removed for ‘Fearless’, appears to be identical. The mourning armband on the man in both photos would also fit because, as P. B. Waite notes, the Tuppers’ son, Victor Gordon, had died at Vimy Ridge in 1917.
