Judgement in Glenn Gould Case

(Ottawa, October 25, 2006) - Library and Archives Canada extends thanks to the District Attorney's Office and the people of New York for their efforts in pursuing a case of theft of cultural heritage from the Glenn Gould collection.

Yesterday, a New York City jury found a Texas college professor guilty on two misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of stolen property from the Library and Archives Canada Glenn Gould collection.

"The decision reinforces the serious nature of the growing problem of international theft of cultural heritage," said Doug Rimmer, Assistant Deputy Minister, Programs and Services Sector, Library and Archives Canada. "The institution maintained ownership of the artifacts all along, and will continue to work towards their safe return to Canada."

Toronto-born Glenn Gould passed away on October 4, 1982, at age 50. Mr. Gould's archives, which include manuscripts, annotated scores, recordings, videos, and personal items, were transferred to the National Library of Canada (now Library and Archives Canada) by his estate in 1983.

Library and Archives Canada is a national institution dedicated to bringing Canada's history to life and making it accessible to all Canadians.
