In 1953, just a few weeks after Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, Eric’s friend and fellow Arts and Letters Club member Vincent Massey was installed in Rideau Hall and became the first Canadian in modern times to be appointed Governor General. Rt. Hon. Massey had been instrumental in establishing the Canadian War Art program, and no doubt had a hand in Eric’s military art commission.

The Work and Life of Eric Aldwinckle

By Michael B. LeBlanc

Print Book, 186 Pages



CAMPING, OR “ROUGHING IT” as it is better known in the “old school” is made up entirely of untying ropes, loosening straps and strings, taking things out of bags, putting knick-knacks in nooks, looking in nooks for knick-knacks, putting them in bags, retying strings, straps and ropes or vice-versa.

-Eric Aldwinckle
