Over the course of fifty years, distinguished Staff Sergeant (retired) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Alert Henry (Al) Lund amassed the largest ever collection of Mountie books, magazines, and comics. From a collection of thousands, he selected approximately one hundred of his favourites for the exhibition and catalogue. In the books, magazines, and comics, the artists and illustrators have captured the image of the Mountie in a variety of styles and have often depicted him as a Canadian hero and world icon. Lund's collection was donated to the University of Alberta Libraries and will be on display at Bruce Peel Special Collections in 2017 (bpsc.library.ualberta.ca).
