Since the appearance of his first novel Who Has Seen the Wind in 1947, W.O. Mitchell has been known as one of Canada's foremost humanists. Through succeeding novels, plays, short stories, radio plays, speeches, and journalism articles, Mitchell has reinforced this position. He has also been a notable teacher of the writing craft for many years. His works, and life, have been and continue to be the subjects of much popular and scholarly comment. The University of Calgary's holdings of his papers and manuscripts are already a much-used resource. The W.O. Mitchell Papers describes these holdings in detail and will be an indispensable tool for all those commentators proposing to undertake any serious work on Mitchell, on Canadian fiction or drama, and on Canadian humour. The volume is prefaced by a useful survey of Mitchell's life and work by Catherine McLay.
