Unfinished Arthur Lismer portrait of Rev. John Forrest commissioned for One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 : [drawing]

Item is an original Arthur Lismer pen and ink portrait of Rev. John Forrest. The drawing is effaced with a penciled X and was not published; see 0000-091, Box 1, Folder 13, Item 2 for the portrait that was reproduced in One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920) and D.C. Harvey, An introduction to the history of Dalhousie University (1938). On the reverse is the portrait of Andrew Walker Herdman Lindsay that appears in One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920).

George Stewart Campbell, LL.D. Chairman of the Board of Governors since 1908 : [print]

Item is a reproduction of an Arthur Lismer illustration commissioned for One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920). The misspelling of George Campbell's middle name as "Stuart" versus "Stewart" in the first printing of the book was the cause for its rejection by the Centenary Committee. The correct spelling appears in the second printing, which suggests that this reproduction is the printer's proof for the second printing.

The misspelling of George Campbell's middle name as "Stuart" in the first printing of the book was the cause for its rejection by the Centenary Committee. The correct spelling appears in the second printing.

Arthur Lismer sketch of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie : [drawing]

Part is an original Arthur Lismer sketch of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie.

Ultimately, none of Lismer's portraits of President Mackenzie was published; the book featured a photographic portrait.

Ink marks barely visible beneath the academic gown indicate the existence of an earlier drawing. The publication featured instead a photographic portrait of President Mackenzie.

Facsimile of the brass on the corner stone of the original Dalhousie College : [drawing]

Item is a facsimile by Arthur Lismer of the ornately scripted brass that graced the original Dalhousie College, commemorating the event of George Ramsay laying the building's cornerstone in 1820.

The book also features a facsimile of the stone tablets on the college's parapet, but the location of the original drawing of these is unknown.
