Interview With Donna Jane Campbell

In a recent e-mail interview with KindredSpaces Project Librarian, Donna Campbell shared the fascinating story of the development of the Ryrie-Campbell Collection and the KindredSpaces project.

Q: When did you first begin collecting Montgomery material, and what was the impetus behind that initial collecting?

Interactive Ryrie-Campbell Special Items

During July of 2019 Dr. Sarah Galletly worked with the Special Items from the Ryrie-Campbell Collection. The result is an enhanced and richly annotated exhibit of postcards, letters, and other Montgomery-related items that surfaces interesting connections.  

View the exhibit of interactive images or view the exhibit as a timeline.

Thanks, once again, to L.M. Montgomery Research Associate Dr. Donna Jane Campbell, whose generosity and support make KindredSpaces possible.

Charlottetown book collectors Frank and Juanita Lechowick have launched a new book, A collector's guide to L.M. Montgomery firsts.

From the launch announcement:

"In the course of research in libraries and used book stores from Charlottetown to Victoria, the authors have discovered the points of Montgomery’s original editions, from Anne of Green Gables (1908) to Anne of Ingleside (1939).  A Collector’s Guide to L. M. Montgomery Firsts presents their findings systematically, with photographs and descriptions of each of the 39 first editions."
