1936 Governor General's Awards

The 1936 Governor General's Awards for Literary Merit began the tradition of Governor General's awards in Canada.[1] They comprised only two categories, for fiction and non-fiction, and were English language only.[1]

Lord Tweedsmuir, then Governor General and himself the noted author of The Thirty-Nine Steps, presented the awards.[1]
