Richard Maurice Bucke (1837-1902) September 22 - October 28, 2017
"The future imagined by the London, Ontario-based radical psychiatrist Richard Maurice Bucke (1837-1902) in Cosmic Consciousness, his 1901 bestseller, is "indescribably hopeful."
Some of the materials showcased in this display show a more intimate side of the guru-like Bucke, as we see him relaxing with family at their Liberty Island retreat, or assembled on the front steps of the Medical Superintendent’s house on the Asylum grounds. “The Saguenay,” a poem by Bucke misattributed to Whitman, and correspondence with the American poet document his visits to Canada and travels with Bucke.
