St. Michael's College
The University of St. Michael's College is pleased to contribute to the time capsule during this year which also marks the sesquicentennial of the founding of our college. Our submission includes documents and artifacts intended to trace St. Michael's development from a tiny school opened by the Basilian Fathers in 1852 for eight students to what is now a university of 4,000 students federated with U of T.

Highlights from the early years include Bishop Charbonnel's letter to the Superior of the Basilian Fathers in France requesting that he send priests to found a boy's school in Toronto, an the school bell from the original college building erected on Clover Hill in 1856: now the oldest building on campus in continuous academic use.

Contemporary items include highlights of the college's publications produced by students, faculty and staff during St. Michael's eighteen month Sesquicentennial celebrations. We hope you enjoy viewing the submission.
