William Lyon Mackenzie King was Canada’s longest-serving Prime Minister. He led Canada for a total of twenty-one years over three terms: 1921-26, 1926-30 and 1935-48. King conducted most of his parliamentary work from his library on the third floor of his home. Today, visitors can tour the library exactly as it was during King’s lifetime, and discover clues about the man who led Canada through the aftermath of the First World War, the Great Depression, and the Second World War.
