Administrative history

The Creative Canada Project was done with the support of a 1968 Canada Council grant by the UVic Library Reference Division, under the direction of Helen Rodney. It resulted in a two volume publication: Creative Canada: A biographical dictionary of twentieth-century creative and performing artists, University of Toronto Press, 1971 (Vol 1), 1972 (Vol 2). The project's intention of updating the information never materialized, most likely because of financial constraints.
