John MacAulay, 1976. Winnipeg Art Gallery.

John Alexander MacAulay (1895–1978), longtime WAG Board Member, supporter, and Honorary President for life, dies. 

In the Gallery’s January 1979 newsletter, Director Roger Selby (1934–1995) writes, “The contributions of Mr. MacAulay to the Winnipeg Art Gallery cannot be measured. It suffices to say that we would not have the building and collection we presently enjoy without his leadership, personal contributions, and successful fund appeals.”
