Why it took 100 years to build
The Manitoba Museum
By James A. Burns
"Fire, Folly and Fiasco is a wonderful account of the origins and growth of Manitoba’s museums from 1870 to 1970. It celebrates the many people who volunteered their time and efforts, persevering in the face of so many obstacles, to preserve Manitoba’s history until a provincial museum would be established in 1970. They richly deserve credit for not giving up. This book makes a valuable addition to the province’s history, especially as we celebrate in 2020 The Manitoba Museum’s 50th anniversary and Manitoba’s 150th."
- Jim Blanchard, retired University of Manitoba librarian and author of Winnipeg's Great War: A City Comes of Age; Winnipeg 1912; and A Diminished Roar: Winnipeg in the 1920s.
