THE UNIVERSITY OF WINNIPEG (1967) began as Manitoba College (1871) and Wesley College (1888), established to train ministers for the Canadian West. In the intervening 136 years, fueled by inspiring teachers and outstanding students, they have morphed United College (1938) into one of the pre-eminent liberal arts university in the country.
Professor Gerald Bedford, the university’s official historian, has already told much of the story in his The University of Winnipeg: A History of the Founding Colleges, published in 1976. In the present volume he covers the rest of the institution's history with the same dedication and insight that marked the earlier volume.
Professor Bedford entered United College as a student 1943, was Senior Stick (student president) in 1945-46 and a lecturer in Mathematics from 1946 to 1949, served as Registrar from 1959 to 1966 and as professor in the English department 1951 ot 1991, and now flourishes as a Fellow of United College. No one knows the institution as well as he and no one is more devoted to it. His Histories are his priceless gift to his alma mater and all members and friends of the university are enormously in his dept. — from the Preface by Henry Edmison Duckworth
