David Alexander Colville
(1920 - 2013) Order of Canada, RCA

Though born in Toronto, Alex Colville considered himself a Maritimer having moved to Nova Scotia at a young age. He studied art at Mount Allison University, N.B. and upon graduating in 1942, Colville joined the Canadian Army and served in Europe as a member of the War Art program. He taught art and art history at Mount Allison University from 1946 to 1963 before devoting himself full-time to his painting and printmaking. Colville was chosen to design a set of coins for Canada's Centennial in 1967 and, that year, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 1982 he was raised to Companion, the highest level of the Order. He was awarded eight honourary degrees and from 1981 to 1991 and served as Chancellor of Acadia University.
