Winnipeg, MB

The Elizabeth Dafoe Library and Archives & Special Collections of the University of Manitoba Libraries are pleased to invite you to the opening of a permanent display of a copy of David Thompson’s 1826 map of northwestern North America and the donation of the map’s digital images.

Reception to follow. Please let us know if we can expect to see you at the opening.

The opening will feature donors and researchers Andreas Korsos and David Malaher, who will speak about the fascinating details of the map and their historic journey to transform Thompson’s map into a 21st century research tool. Thompson’s map shows northwest North America from Sault Ste. Marie to the Pacific Ocean in exceptionally large scale, over 10 feet wide and over 6 feet high.  The map contains detailed notes not seen on other maps by Thompson or in his journals. The original map, housed in the National Archives in London, England, has received very little attention since it arrived in the 19th century.  Its excellent physical condition enabled copying by advanced digital processes to achieve very high fidelity.
