Named Queen’s chancellor in 1980, Agnes Benidickson worked tirelessly in service of the university. Over the next 16 years, she drew on her philanthropic, corporate and social welfare experience, travelling across the country, fundraising and “friendraising” for Queen’s – and granting an estimated 64,000 degrees upon students.

Her family’s ties to the university run long and deep. ...

In 1969, the university wanted to bring all its residences under unified management and...

As capital of the united Canadas in the early 1840s, Kingston supported the founding of both Queen’s and the Geological Survey of Canada. Sensing the need to map and inventory the new land’s resources, the legislature (meeting in the hastily-converted Kingston General Hospital) voted to spend £1,500 to create the Geological Survey of Canada. At almost the same time, a group of local clerics...

With its regal name and royal charter, Queen’s has long attracted royalty to its campus. Perhaps the most memorable visit was in 1991 when Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, charmed the campus for its 150th anniversary.

In the early days, Queen’s College had a motto and crest but no school colours. In 1884, inspired by the college crest, the student government took matters into its own hands and consecrated blue, gold and red as the Queen’s official colours. [ Queensu.ca Link ]

In 1840, the colonial legislature approved the creation of Queen’s University. A royal charter from Queen Victoria would arrive the next year, but at the time there were no buildings, no faculty and no students. Thanks to a generous donation from Judge James Mitchell, the school-to-be had some physical assets: books.

With Douglas Library bulging with books, Queen’s began planning for a new library in the late 1980s. Faced with capacity challenges and the emerging information age, Queen’s embarked on its “library of the 21st century.” A generous donation from the foundation started by Sc’20 grad Joseph S. Stauffer pushed the project from ambition to reality.

Trees had been an integral part of the Queen’s landscape since the 1860s when botanist George Lawson planted an arboretum on the Summerhill slope, but by the 1960s they were disappearing.

Over that decade, Queen’s grew as it had never done before – to 10,000 students by the early 1970s. New academic buildings and residences were built as Dutch Elm disease attacked Queen’s urban forest....

When the First World War rocked Europe, Queen’s students and faculty rushed to enlist. Between 1915 and 1918, the number of Queen’s men in uniform grew from 300 to more than 1,500.

In 1916-17, with only 600 students on campus, the university found itself financially strapped. The university rented Grant Hall to the military as a hospital (to enhance the hall’s capacity a second floor was...
