(From the website) This exhibition invites you to explore L.M. Montgomery's life (1874-1942) and visual imagination through a sample of her personal scrapbook pages and book covers, found in five Canadian archival and museum collections. For the first time, viewers may see in one place a sample of the images Montgomery collected, created, and inspired, including souvenirs, photographs, and cover art.
Known best for Anne of Green Gables and the Emily books, Montgomery is a person of national historic significance and a hero of the Twentieth Century: gifted author, diarist, photographer, letter writer, keeper of scrapbooks, and newspaper woman.
Her public and private works show Canadian culture as she reflected and imagined it; the book covers suggest how some of her imaginings were interpreted and marketed. The images in this exhibition may give you special insight into the Canada Montgomery has made famous around the world.
Dr. Elizabeth Rollins Epperly, founder of the L.M. Montgomery Institute at UPEI, is the curator of this virtual exhibition, which has been avaialble on the world wide web since August 2002.
