Famed actor, writer, director, and humanitarian spokesman Sir Peter Ustinov (1921–2004) visits Winnipeg to launch the WAG Studio Building Endowment Fund.

Ustinov was an active proponent of art education for children. News that art education for children had been a central part of the Gallery’s mandate since 1913 attracted Ustinov to Winnipeg for the launch of the Studio Building Endowment Fund.
