     W.J. Phillips
     R.W. Major
     Philip Surrey

Additional west coast artists who exhibited in Montreal included Melita Aitken, Jane Billaux, Statira Frame, Marguerite Marie Frechette, T.W. Fripp, Mary Riter Hamilton, Gwendolen Kortwright Lamont, Beatrice Lennie, J. Delisle Parker, Molly Privett, Peter Sager, Charles H. Scott, Hilda J. Stewart, Mildred Valley Thornton, and Gerald Hall Tyler.

The compilation of information by Evelyn McMann titled Montreal Museum of Fine Arts formerly Art Association of Montreal Spring Exhibitions 1880 - 1970 contains not only complete listings of all works exhibited during that period of time, but also includes a list of biographical sources, lists of members of the Juries, and a list of exhibitions. An excellent source of information.
