Port of St. Louis, 'Les Voyages du Sieur de Champlain...' by Samuel de Champlain, 1613 (print)
Samuel de Champlain (1574-1635), known as "The Father of New France", was a French navigator, cartographer, draftsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat, and chronicler. He made from 21-29 trips across the Atlantic and founded New France and Quebec City on July 3, 1608. He is important to Canadian history because he made the first accurate map of the coast and he helped found the settlements.
