Barry Wilson Collection
Barry Wilson has been working for the Western Producer for 30 years as a journalist writing on topics such as federal policy development, federal-provincial agricultural relations, national farm lobbies, world trade talks, and world food issues.
At the age of fourteen Mr. Wilson began collecting political memorabilia and the items in the Collection all have a unique story behind them. At the core of the Barry Wilson Collection are the signatures of every Canadian Prime Minister between 1867 and 2009.
This web exhibit focuses on the motivations behind and highlights of the collection. It features images of all the items in the Wilson Collection and an oral history conducted with Barry Wilson, and a lecture given by Barry Wilson in Chelsea, Quebec to the Gatineau Valley Historical Society. All of these items in the collection are linked to the Archives and Research Collections archival finding aid.
