Series consists of correspondence and financial records of the King Memorial Fund. Series is arranged into two boxes: the first contains incoming correspondence about subscription to the Fund, arranged alphabetically by the name of sender. The second box contains the reports of Rev. Joseph Hogg, who travelled around Canada soliciting subscription, particularly from Presbyteries; the memos and incoming and outgoing correspondence of the King Memorial Fund Committee; and a list of subscriptions from Presbyteries, arranged alphabetically.
The King Memorial Fund began in May 1902 as an effort to raise $50,000 in order to endow a Chair in New Testament Exegesis called the King Memorial Chair. The Chair was meant to honour Manitoba College's first Principal, Dr. John Mark King, who had passed away in 1899. The second Principal, Dr. William Patrick, was appointed to the Chair in 1905 and by the following year the fundraising goal had been surpassed.
