Part is an unfinished Arthur Lismer portrait of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie, commissioned for One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920).

Arthur Lismer sketch of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie : [drawing]

Part is an original Arthur Lismer sketch of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie. The drawing is laid out on a grid, using pencil on tracing paper, and is probably an early study for an illustration commissioned for One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920). Ultimately, none of Lismer's portraits of President Mackenzie was published; the book featured a photographic portrait.

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

Part is an original Arthur Lismer portrait of George Stewart Campbell commissioned for One Hundred Years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920). The drawing contains the date-received stamp from the printer's engraving department, which reads "Mar 1 1920," as well as faint pencil notations along the bottom border and the title "George Stewart Campbell." 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.
