The purpose of this internship was to identify Canadian artists who illustrated children's books. -- Of six hundred children's book artists thought to be Canadian 164 artists were positively identified as being Canadian. The children's books referred to in this project were those published between 1815 and 1975. -- An artist was considered Canadian if he met one of the following criteria: (1) the artist was born and lived in Canada, (2) the artist was born in Canada and lived there during his formative years, (3) the artist immigrated to Canada in youth or middle age and spent the rest of his life there, (4) the artist was born elsewhere, but was influenced in some way by the time spent in Canada, and (5) the artist was born elsewhere, but influenced Canadian art during his stay in Canada. -- A biography was written for each artist who met one or more of the above criteria. In addition, a bibliography was prepared for each artist. The bibliography consists of works created by the artist, and references about him.
