The Canada Council Category 10
Mr. Ralph Gustafson is applying to the Canada Council for a full term fellowship in order to pursue work in poetry and fiction, and I have the greatest pleasure in supporting his application.
I have been familiar with him and his writings for nearly fifteen years, and I do not know anyone in the whole Canadian field more able in respect to versatility. It has always been a delight to watch his performance measure up to his project. He is as good a critic as he is a creative artist a bird of rare plumage nowadays.
Again with pleasure,
