Collection Summary

Title: Colin S. MacDonald fonds.
Dates: – 1960-2007.
Quantity: – 2.00 m of textual records and other material.

Biographical Sketch

Born in Ottawa, Colin S. MacDonald received his early education there and in Kitchener, Ontario. As a mid-career civil servant in Ottawa, he decided to resign from his government job and work more or less full-time on a biographical dictionary of Canadian artists. His inspiration came in the 1960s, when he discovered an international dictionary of artists. Although partial dictionaries already existed, either chronological (early painters and printmakers) or geographical (Saskatchewan artists), nothing had previously been attempted across the board for Canadian visual artists. Not trained as an art historian, Mr. MacDonald worked primarily from the documentation files maintained in the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives supported by extensive correspondence with individual artists and their representatives or relatives. Over the years, Mr. MacDonald's commitment has been extraordinary. Although he received some government grants, he subsidized his project through personal loans, selling his own artwork as well as selling portions of his own fine arts library. The dictionary offers over 6000 biographies of living and dead Canadian visual artists and sculptors with a reference list for further information on each artist. The resource comes in 8 volumes totaling over 3000 pages After several decades of industrious research and writing, with volumes from A to Smith already published, ill health and advancing years obliged Mr. MacDonald to hand on the project to others to complete. The NGC completed the project by compiling biographical entries from Smith to Z. In 2009, these entries together with those complied by Mr. MacDonald were added to Artists in Canada, an online resource supported by the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) that lists documentation files on Canadian artists held by 23 libraries and archives across Canada, including the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives.

Series Level Descriptions

Correspondence Series. – 1960-2007. – 1.36 m of textual records and other material.

The series consists of correspondence between Colin MacDonald and artists, their dealers or representatives. While compiling the biographies for the Dictionary of Canadian Artists, Colin MacDonald corresponded with many of the artists and others in order to develop the content to be included in the volumes. He created a template to capture basic information in a common format and sent that to each contact for completion. Mr. MacDonald corresponded with the artists, their agents, family members, gallery owners, dealers and others in order to gather information. In addition to completing the template, the respondents often included additional content or sent more materials during the time the dictionary was being drafted. Most, but not all of the artists' in the files are included in the Dictionary. These files reflect a wide range of materials. Some files include invitations to Galleries hosting shows by the artist. Other files include newspaper clippings about the artist and photographs of the artist, his or her works or both. Some include colour photographs of the artist's work. Most files include envelops which have a variety of stamps, some cancelled and some not cancelled as well as unique letterheads. Ephemera such as receipts, photographs, small sketches by the artists, Christmas cards created by the artist and copies of Who's Who in Canada are included in some files. In some cases, the artist has included notes to describe their style, genre or process. The correspondence with some artists spans a number of months or years and offers glimpses into travel locations, preferences and the political history of the time. In a few cases, original art such as woodcuts, lithographs or publications are included and when appropriate have been transferred to the Library collection.
In all cases, references to unique inclusions are noted against the file number in the Box Lists.
Language: Text is mainly in English. A few items are in French.
