Founded in 1841 by a royal charter Queens University evolved into a national institution steeped in tradition and an abiding sense of public serv- ice. Propelled initially by its Presbyterian instincts and an attachment to Gaelic culture Queens has prospered and adapted over the years to match Canadas ever-changing dynamics. In this third volume of Queens Univer- sitys ofcial history Duncan McDowall demonstrates that the late twentieth century was a contest between expediency and tradition waged through crisis and careful evolution. Testing Tradition calibrates the durability of Queens vaunted traditions in the face of shifts in the broader Canadian society. During this time of massive post-secondary expansion Queens grew sevenfold from a small collegial campus of 3100 students to a sprawling cosmopolitan place of more than 20000 students from over 120 countries engaged in undergradu- ate graduate and professional programs. Measuring Queens Universitys responses to concerns over social diversity human rights and gender equity through the eyes of its trustees administrators students faculty and the Kingston community this volume pays particular attention to the experi- ences of women and visible minorities at the university. Copiously illustrated with photographs of important people events and aspects of campus life this volume shows how Queens in having its tradi- tions tested has worked to retain the best of its past while accepting the inevitability of change. Duncan McDowall is University Historian at Queens University and the author of The Sum of the Satisfactions Canada in the Age of National Accounting. Ofcially founded in 1821 the Montreal General Hospital is recognized as a pioneering institution in North America for the many discoveries in medical research made there and for its early association with the Faculty of Medi- cine at McGill University the rst medical school in Canada.
