This street is named in honour of Gérard Morisset (1896-1970), an art historian and writer, who was born in Cap-Santé. He was an important figure on Quebec’s cultural scene for almost 50 years. He was educated at Université Laval and became a notary, but devoted much of his life to the conservation and study of Quebec’s artistic and architectural heritage.
