Sieur Daniel Greysolon Dulhut

Sieur Daniel Greysolon Dulhut

1639?-1710

French soldier and discoverer who led explorations of the expansive Lake Superior. Born into French nobility, Dulhut set sail for New France (Canada) in 1674 and settled in Montreal the following year. In 1678, he formed an expedition to try to form alliances between the French and the Native American populations living along the Lake Superior shoreline. This and ensuing travels and negotiations helped to ensure France's role as the primary European force in the fur trade within New France. Dulhut died in Montreal in 1710.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
