Custodial history

Scope and content

This sculptural object was created by Canadian-Hungarian artist, Julius Damasdy and entered into the Ontario Society of Artists show at the Toronto Art Gallery in 1967 and winning the award for best sculpture.

Dr. Franc Joubin, a founding member of Ryerson's newly formed Board of Governors, promised to purchase whichever sculpture won best place in its category.

The sculpture stood in the President's Office and later in the Library where it stood on guard in the 6th floor book stacks. It was finally banished to the Ryerson Archives.

The sculpture has the artist's name on its base, "Damasdy," and is also known as Peter.
