Annual Report of the Board of Trustees for the Fiscal Year 1920-21 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Annual Report of the Board of Trustees for the Fiscal Year 1920-21 The National Gallery of Canada was founded in 1880, and has grown by means of the annual grants voted by the Dominion Parliament for such purposes and by means of gifts. In 1907 an Advisory Arts Council was appointed by the Dominion Government to administer its grants to the National Gallery. Its first members were Sir George Alexander Drum mond, Chairman; Sir Edmund Walker, and Hon. Arthur Boyer. Upon the death of Sir George Drummond in 1909, Dr. Francis J. Shepherd was appointed to fill the vacancy and Sir Edmund Walker was elected chairman. In 1913 the National Gallery of Canada was incorporated by Act of Parliament and placed under the management of a Board of Trustees appointed by the Governor General in Council. The work of the National Gallery is carried on by the Director, Mr. Eric Brown. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
