In 1919, Howard O'Hagan went east to study law at McGill University. There, Stephen Leacock was one of his professors, and, with A.J.M. Smith, he edited the McGill Daily.

The School-Marm Tree is a novel about mountains: about the "presence" in mountains, about the heart's desire to go beyond mountains.
