Arthur Erickson portrait
In September 1946, Erickson transferred, with advanced standing into the second year of the School of Architecture at McGill. McGill received strong letters of recommendation on his behalf, from the President of the University of British Columbia, the assistant to the Dean of Arts and Science and Mr. Lawren Harris. At the time, two members of the McGill School of Architecture staff were well known to Lawren Harris: Arthur Lismer, a fellow member of the Group of Seven, who was in charge of Sketching School, Freehand Drawing, History of Art and Theory of Design; and Gordon Webber, to whom Harris had actually written, who conducted the course in Basic Design.
