Notice biographique

Mary F. Williamson (1933- ), Senior Librarian and Fine Arts Bibliographer, York University; M.A. and M.L.S. (University of Toronto). Williamson's research has focused on the early literature of Canadian art, on printmaking and book illustration in Canada in the nineteenth century, on art librarianship, and on the history of food and cookery. She has taught art librarianship at various graduate library schools in North America, and has published numerous articles on Canadian wood engraving, book and periodical illustration, art librarianship and culinary history. Italian baroque drawings have been a special interest for many years and examples from her collection have been lent to exhibitions in Canada and abroad. She has contributed articles to various encyclopaedias including: 'The Grove Dictionary of Art' (2000) and 'The History of the Book in Canada' vols. 1 and 2 (2004-2005). Her major publications include: 'The Art and Pictorial Press in Canada' with Karen McKenzie (1979); 'Art and Architecture in Canada : A Bibliography and Guide to the Literature' with Loren Lerner (1991); and 'Toronto Dancing Then and Now' (1995). Williamson has also been active with professional librarian associations, and as a private citizen in local residents' associations.
