Discover these and other amazing facts and historical wonders on forty plaques mounted by the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections around the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses. These histories are anecdotal in nature and complement the official cairns that recount the biographical details of the buildings' namesakes. The histories will be regularly updated to bring fresh facts and odd tidbits for the reader's delectation. Through such initiatives, the Archives wishes to share the university's vibrant and fascinating historical legacy with people on campus and visitors alike.
The plaques were funded by the Manitoba Heritage Grants Advisory Council with support from University of Manitoba Physical Plant.
