Amintha Plouffe (1870-1962)

August 6, 2021

In 1904 Amintha Plouffe was one of 16 Canadian women travelling together aboard a Canadian Pacific Railway train to cover the St. Louis World Fair for their respective newspaper or magazine.

She wrote a lively and interesting report of the exposition for Montreal’s morning daily newspaper, Le Journal. But Plouffe never became a journalist and the paper she wrote the story for folded in 1905. Instead she continued to be listed in Montreal’s city directory as a stenographer until the age of 75.
