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 correct spelling appears in the second printing, which suggests that this reproduction is the printer's proof for the second printing.
