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.

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

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