May 1964 - Second edition of The Humanities in Canada

After twenty years have passed since the original project began, the Humanities Research Council of Canada publishes a second edition of The Humanities in Canada. The goal of the revision, as its editor F.E.L. Priestley wrote, is to gauge “how far the condition of the humanities in Canada improved since 1947, what problems are now urgent, and what are the prospects for the immediate future?” Again, scholars are surveyed, although the new surveys are less extensive than the originals, since some data can now be obtained from other sources.
