This exhibit featured books from the John H. Meier, Jr. Governor General’s Literary Award English Fiction Collection, the largest and most comprehensive of collection of Governor General's Award winning books in the world. This exhibit highlighted some of the treasures from his 500-volume collection, including signed first editions, uncorrected proofs, advance review copies and author's copies. The exhibit was supplemented with archival material, including correspondence and photos, from the Fisher manuscript collections, including the Margaret Atwood Papers, the Douglas Lepan Papers and the William Deacon Papers. Deacon was instrumental in the founding of the awards in the 1930s. This exhibit was also a 75th anniversary celebration: on November 24, 1937, that the first Governor General’s Awards were presented by Lord Tweedsmuir (John Buchan). The ceremony was held a short walk from the Fisher Library, at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall.
