  1. Your image of a Howard illluminated adddress ,it may have been part of a memorial exhibition at the Toronto art gallery shortly after his death. I have collected many Howard items over the years. They do not show up often as they are kept in the family. I have found more than thirty in private and family collections. Jan kamermans 9055251440.
