The charter for King’s College, the university’s predecessor, was issued in 1827. But the University of Toronto was actually founded by a Provincial Act in 1850. While I think it’s fair to say that U of T has its roots in King’s College, it really isn’t true to say that U of T is 192 years old.
Happy 192nd Birthday, U of T! Sadly and apparently, I need to brush up on my knowledge of U of T.
Name the U of T PhD candidate who discovered the drug Premarin, which now has revenues of about $1 billion a year.
Good fun! And I learned a lot too.
Nice way to turn the tables! Our answer: J.B. Collip, in 1930.
Great questions and excellent brain teaser!
Happy Birthday U of T!
Will do better, next time.
Happy 192nd birthday, University of Toronto!
It was great to learn U of T history.
