From barley field to academe / Robert H. Blackburn
University of Toronto Press, 2014.

From the first words, though, I found it almost impossible to put down. I decided then and there that the book must be published and that the University of Toronto Library would publish it. The compelling story of his early life in Alberta in the second decade of the twentieth century, and his account of how he took the helm at the University of Toronto as Chief Librarian in the 1950s and oversaw its vast expansion over the following decades, was once I felt would make absorbing reading for all who opened the book".
