A large statue of Sir Arthur Doughty, taken to show the statue's full profile. Doughty sits on a chair, wearing a long flowing robe and dress shoes. The chair is on top of a large, decorative square cement pedestal, with this quote inscribed on the side: Of all national assets, archives are the most precious: they are the gift of one generation to another and the extent of our care of them marks the extent of our civilization. The Canadian Archives and Its Activities, Arthur G. Doughty. A paper sign is curled around his feet, placed by archivists and supporters, that reads: Save the National Archival Development Program.
