    • Abstract:
      This study discusses the development of the network of baby clinics in francophone Montreal, beginning in the 1910s, which were to be the source of serious conflicts between various advocates, namely, groups of priests and physicians, members of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste National Federation, and municipal government. Child-saving, a fitting nationalist project to bring together elites in the same cause, instead degenerated into a power struggle. Conceived in different terms and after the various political ambitions of the parties became irreconciliable, the organization for the battle against infant mortality in Montreal proved to be a powerful reflection of the discords which separated those who were concerned about the future of the nation and those with ambitions for their personal advancement.
