Carl Spadoni is the former Director of the William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collections, McMaster University Library.  In 1999, he was awarded the Marie Tremaine Medal by the Bibliographical Society of Canada for outstanding service to Canadian bibliography and for distinguished publication. He is the author of seven books including the Bibliography of McClelland and Stewart Ltd. Imprints, 1909-1985 (with Judy Donnelly).

We met during the summer, in Hamilton, to talk about the history of M&S and which books and series from this venerable Canadian publishing house, might be worth collecting.
