Philippe Aubert de Gaspé

Gaspé, Philippe Aubert de (fēlēpˈ ōbĕrˈ də gäspāˈ) [key], 1786–1871, French Canadian author. He was high sheriff of Quebec for several years. His Les Anciens Canadiens (1863, tr. 1864, 1890), a classic of French Canadian literature, is valuable for its picture of life and customs in Quebec at the end of the 18th cent. Gaspé's Mémoires (1866) also are of historical interest.
