Marie-Claire Kirkland was born back in 1924 in Palmer, Massachusetts to Charles and Rose. I didn’t find much of her childhood. So, let’s cut to the chase. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1947, her Bachelor of Civil Law in 1950 from McGill University.
She became a judge in 1973, retiring in 1991. She died in 2016, she was 91.
What you may not know about Marie-Claire Kirkland-Casgrain is that she was the first woman elected to the Legislative Assembly of Quebec, the first woman appointed a Cabinet minister in Quebec, the first woman appointed acting premier and the first woman judge to serve in the Quebec Provincial Court.
I know this one is short, however sometimes I can’t find more to make it interesting.
