 “Ted Layng was well known not only as a map librarian/​cartographic archivist but also as an historian of cartography. As Chief of the Public Archives Map Division … Ted Layng oversaw a division which increased from 20,000 maps and plans to approximately 500,000. Decisions to collect current Canadian maps so as to ascertain complete archival records for the future, to expand into maps of foreign countries, to accept the task of compiling the Canadian contribution to the Bibliographie cartographique internationale,​ to collect architectural plans, to develop an automated national union catalogue, etc. were amongst those that meant that the division acquired both a national reputation as the leading and largest collection and also an excellent international reputation.”\\ “Ted Layng was well known not only as a map librarian/​cartographic archivist but also as an historian of cartography.
