Books by Ellen Schoek
Why go to university, and why the U of A? Who was Henry Marshall Tory? Elizabeth Sterling Haynes? What ere the radical 1960s like, and what was student life like in the 1990s? Who would know the answers to these questions better than a century's worth of alumni? After all, they were there to see it happening themselves.
Aerial photographs and private collections round out Dennis Weber's maps. Many images tell the story of a major North American university that was hewed out of a brush-covered farm on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River.
Welcome to the Digital Archives section of the University of Alberta Centenary website! Here, you are invited to explore the University's rich history by sifting through some of the many documents and photographs that have served to both create and to record progress at the University of Alberta.
These materials, along with numerous audio and video files, have been digitized and are accessible here to everyone. They survive as testimony to the thousands of hours poured into the ongoing creation and development of the University of Alberta.
