The Life of Arthur Henshaw Packer

June K. Ridley

Postscript by Robert Stacey

Immigrating to Canada around 1909, A. Henshaw Packer was commissioned to carve the tympanum of the Winnipeg Law Courts. After homesteading in the Peguis Reserve area, he moved with his family to Toronto and revived his carving profession, working on commissions such as the Trinity College Quadrangle, the Postal Building on Bay Street, the Lion Monument at the entrance of the Queen Elizabeth Way, and the Canadian Coat of Arms on the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls. This biography by his daughter includes over 50 archival photos of his life in both Manitoba and Ontario.
