title James H. Fitzgerald and "Prince Edward Island, Adieu"
creator Cousins, John
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Perhaps the most vivid and lasting record of anti-Confederation sentiment on the Island is the song ' Prince Edward Isle, Adieu." Despite its importance, little is known about the song's author and date of origin. Speculations on the writer's identity have centered around our two best-known songmakers, Larry Gorman and Lawrence Doyle. However, a third oral tradition names James H. Fitzgerald, and while little known, his claim seems strongest. Before considering this claim, it seems only fair to review those made for Doyle and Gorman.
