Exhibition title: “He Was the Very Model of a Modern Research Scientist:” Reginald Buller and the Founding of the University of Manitoba


Reginald Buller was one of the first six professors hired by the University of Manitoba in 1904 to teach “modern science.” Buller was, and continues to be, recognized as an internationally famous mycologist, studying mushrooms and other fungi. He left an extraordinary collection of photos, lantern slides, specimens, correspondence, watercolor renderings, artifacts and an enormous library. Walk into his office as it might have looked in his time and come take a peek into his laboratory!
