Letter from Principal Saskatoon Collegiate Institute to Mr. Thomas W. Mitchell, April 16, 1920.
Letter from Alfred J. Pyke, principal of Saskatoon Collegiate Institute (presently named Nutana Collegiate), to Thomas W. Mitchell, Canadian artist, asking if he would be willing to contribute a painting to the Memorial Art Gallery. Pyke provides some important background information about the Memorial Art Gallery, including when it was formed, the reasons for establishing such a gallery, and its purpose. The paintings, however, are supposed to be strictly by Canadian artists. Finally, Pyke says that he particularly likes Mitchell's "The End of the Portage."
