Doug Illustrates Essay on Nova Scotia Shipbuilder W. D. Lawrence

Gage Educational Publishing Limited, Toronto commissioned Doug to illustrate an essay by Joseph Schull on the life of the Nova Scotia shipbuilder W. D. Lawrence. The essay, titled "The Basket of Eggs," appeared in the 1970 children's reading book Cavalcades.

Early in Doug's career as a free lance artist, he was hired by a number of Canadian publishers to do illustrations for textbooks. In fact, he estimates that his work appears in at least 60 textbooks.
