Biographie / Histoire administrative

Octave-Henri Julien called Henri Julien by his contemporaries, was best known in his day as a cartoonist and illustrator. He was born on May 14, 1852 in Quebec. In about 1860 he lived in Montreal and studied until 1867 at the school of the drawing instructor L'abbé Chabert. He learned the lithographic process of William Leggo in the studios of Georges-Édouard Desbarats and in about 1869 became chief illustrator for the firm of Desbarats which published the Canadian illustrated news and L'opinion publique. In 1874 he accompanied a detachment of the North-West Mounted Police in the North-West and reported on the suppression of liquor traffic in the Prairies. From 1878 to 1903 he produced cartoons which he signed Crincrin, for Le farceur de Montréal. Later he became artistic director for the Montreal daily star, a position he kept until his death. He was working on preparations for the Quebec Tercentenary when he died in Montreal, in 1908. Harper, J. Russell.
