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...

As men across Canada enlisted during the First World War, the impact of their absence became evident. At Queen’s, not only were there fewer students, there were fewer professors, too.

With crisis, however, comes opportunity and change, and it was during this time that Queen’s hired its first two female faculty members: May Macdonnell and Wilhelmina Gordon.

When Queen’s first principal went looking for teaching talent in Scotland in the summer of 1842, he came back with academic jack-of-all-trades James Williamson. At times, he taught the entire range of arts offerings in a single year.

Professor Williamson’s talents and interests were many. He was a founding member of the Royal Society of Canada and the Botanical Society of Canada, established...

Though the small college took the name of a female monarch when it opened in 1841, women were not part of the first class.
As the century progressed, the philosophical basis for gender segregation began to erode and women demanded to be included.

On April 30, 1884, for the first time, five women donned hoods, gowns, and were granted degrees from Queen’s. All went on to prominent careers in...

Once a greasy spoon diner at the corner of Union and Division, the Tea Room was a campus favourite of faculty, students and staff alike when it opened in 1924.

Shuttered in the 1970s, the Tea Room got a second life in 2006 when it reopened in Beamish-Munro Hall, thanks to the efforts of environmentally-conscious students, including Dragons’ Den’s Michele Romanow, Sc'07, MBA'08.
