Muriel Sprague Richardson, 1967. Winnipeg Tribune Collection, Western Canada Pictorial Index, University of Winnipeg.

The Gallery announces that it has received a gift of $10,000 from Muriel Sprague Richardson (d. 1973).

Richardson is a long-serving member of the Women’s Committee and President of the Winnipeg company James Richardson and Sons. She pledges the money to renovate the space occupied by the WAG in the Civic Auditorium in order to better accommodate its growing staff (which increased from three people in 1953 to a dozen in 1965) and better display its growing art collection.
