Current Exhibition

  • Folk legend, Paul Bunyan
    February 3 to April 1, 2020

    The larger-than-life lumberjack Paul Bunyan became popular in the first half of the 20th century, as evidenced by the many beautiful illustrations and woodcuts showcased in the books in this exhibition. Viewers will also learn about the "fakelore versus folklore" debate relating to the character of Paul Bunyan.

    The Bunyan books and a small sampling of other folklore-themed works are drawn from the Robins Folklore Collection, a special collection established by J.D. Robins, former Librarian and English Professor at Victoria University (in the University of Toronto) from 1910 to 1952.
