The William Lyon Mackenzie Canadiana Collection
Over a period of twenty years the Canadian High Commission in London and the Provincial Government of Ontario donated money to several Scottish University Libraries to buy Canadian publications in the fields of literature, history, politics and geography. These items are shelved in the Solum Store (Remote Store 1) and most of them can be borrowed in the normal way. William Lyon Mackenzie (1795-1861) was a native of Dundee who emigrated to Canada in 1820 and became a major political figure, and the first mayor of Toronto, in pre-reform Canada.
