Lois Lister

This endowment honours Lois Lister, a prominent Canadian landscape architect. The fund, established by her family, supports the Centre for Canadian Landscape Architecture Archives, which includes the Lois Lister Collection.

Her husband, Maurice W. Lister, donated this extensive collection in 1996. It is the first known comprehensive collection of a major practitioner, and includes working notes, sketches, drawings, architectural blueprints and photographs that document her work for some 250 individual clients, mainly in Ontario.
