This issue’s image is from the Sheaf Literary Supplement of March 1942. The caption reads: “Prairie City in 1940 shows Mr. Lindner’s sincere interest in the contemporary scene, interpreting life about him. The water color was purchased by the International Business Machines Corporation of New York and has been touring the country with their travelling exhibition.”
This supplement is a mixture of student poetry and prose with examples of work by Saskatchewan artists. The Literary Supplements were an intermittent feature first appearing in 1922 with the 1940s seeing the most elaborate and frequent publications. The 1942 issue was “sincerely dedicated” to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, president of the United States. Ernest Lindner was presented a U of S honorary degree in May of 1972.
