* In her list of Casavant employees up to 1956 (pages 735–60), Jeanne D'Aigle gives the "date d'entrée ou de départ" (hiring or ending date). On pages 653–54, D’Aigle reproduces a 1905 document that displays photographs of the earliest Casavant employees and a scroll headed “In Memoriam” with the name and date of death of employees who had died before 1905; on pages 731–34, she lists the employees whose names are inscribed in the document. —Ed.
