Glenn Gould's signature was used on the cover of Glenn Gould, the  magazine issued under the auspices of the Glenn Gould Foundation:


However, this newspaper article indicates that Nicholas Ignatieff (Michael's uncle) died in 1952:

And there are these obituaries from 2014 for another Nicholas Ignatieff (the likely recipient of the Gould album) whose relationship to Michael is not provided other than reference in the second URL to the "extended Ignatieff" family:


Also, there is this biographical data regarding the Nicholas Ignatieff who died in 2014:

Can anyone direct me to where I could have a Glenn Gould signature authenticated?  I have an album that I think was once owned by Former Liberal Leader/academic/writer Michael Ignatieff's uncle, Nicholas (Nicky) Ignatieff. In ball point cursive in the back cover it reads, "For Nicky Ignatieff best wishes Glenn Gould/1960". I am wondering about provenance and the possible value should it turn out to be authentic.

Thank you,

Rick Lockhart
