From the Archives

Old medals, uniforms, photographs and more, dating back to c.1829. In an Internet age, isn’t it wonderful we’ve preserved treasures we can touch and visit? The College’s archives is a fascinating repository of UCC memorabilia.

The archives promotes and preserves the College’s heritage and institutional memory. It seeks and acquires records and artifacts of permanent value to UCC and its affiliates. It offers a wealth of information about the history of the College, Upper Canada, Toronto and Ontario. UCC graduates, faculty and the College itself have played a central role in Canadian politics, education, the arts and sports.

The archives include a wealth of materials relating to the College community’s involvement in the First World War. The following hold specific relevance:

College Times

Memorial Wing

UCC Motor Ambulance

Private Papers of Victor Benson Wright ’13

If you or your family has a special memory or artifact to share which relates to UCC and the First World War, please contact College Archivist Jill Spellman.
