Winston C. Lucas fonds

  • CA UVICARCH AR196
  • Fonds

The fonds consists of 7 letters of Mary Lou Williams to Winston Lucas asking his assistance in distributing her new LP record recently released by Decca Record. Williams was a black jazz pianist and arranger-composer, who is often regarded as the only significant female instrumentalist in jazz. She was an important "swing" pianist with a distinctively understated, legato manner based on subtly varied stride and boogie-woogie bass patterns. She was also a major exponent of postwar modern jazz, and advanced the careers of many younger magicians.

World War I sketchbook collection

  • 1917 - 1918

The collection consists of 123 pen-and-ink drawings and watercolours titled: Sketches of the War : France/Belgium in 2 volumes and is dedicated in a pasted in letter: "To my Daughter Adele." The sketches vary from satirical cartoons to more detailed and naturalistic renditions. They are often accompanied by an ironic title and are often signed with the artist's initials, "J.M." The artist's satirical targets include the officers and high command of both combatant sides; the disjuncture between reported and actual events, and the death of civilians as a fact of modern warfare.
