My heartfelt thanks to Mary Handford who patiently entertained my speculations on her husband and gave me access to a wealth of material; Matthew Teitelbaum who has done so much to sustain Paterson Ewen’s legacy and responded graciously to all my queries; Kim Moodie who was both a student and a colleague of Paterson (he was also a student of Guido Molinari!); the many students and friends of Paterson whom I ran into during my research who volunteered so many wonderful anecdotes; my partner, Karen, who is thrilled to have her husband back, and sons, Robbie and Pat, who are tired of hearing about Ewen; the archivists at the Art Gallery of Ontario; John Shearer of the Canadian Art Group; my assiduous research assistants Shelley Kopp and Leah Abaza; Kim Neudorf, who helped with several of the images; Anna Hudson and Sara Angel who eagerly took up my suggestion of writing a volume on Ewen; Eva Lu, a former student of mine, who did some amazing detective work in sourcing the images; Kendra Ward who oversaw the production of my text; and Lucy Kenward, who is a phenomenal editor and deserves much of the credit for keeping my text on track and my verbosity to a minimum.
