‘The age of guessing is passed away’: An Exhibition to Mark the David Thompson Bicentennial

Tue, May. 22, 2007 to Fri, Aug. 31, 2007

David Thompson sketch

This celebration of the remarkable achievements of Canadian explorer, trader and cartographer David Thompson (1770-1857) forms part of the North American David Thompson Bicentennials initiative. As the institution that holds one of the primary source documents of the life of Thompson, the narrative of his 'Travels', the Fisher Library has undertaken this exhibition to commemorate not only his life, writings and works, but also the long and rich tradition from which he came-the explorers and fur traders who mapped Canada. This exhibition was curated by Sandra Alston.

This exhibition is also available online.
