James Carrel was the founder of the Quebec Daily Telegraph in 1875.

The reception hall at Quebec City Hall was crowded on Thursday, October 23, with relatives, friends and associates anxious to see the blue ceramic plaques or epigraphs that would soon be unveiled to honour the memory of ten famous residents of the City.

Among those being honoured was James Carrel (1843-1891), founder of the Quebec Daily Telegraph in 1875.
