Administrative history

The Wesley College History Club held its first meeting in October, 1931 under the sponsorship of History professor A.R.M. Lower. Club meetings centred on papers read by members. In October 1931 the Club heard a paper titled, 'The Dark Hours and Canadian immigration.' In November 1936 a paper titled, 'The Red Peril' was read. In the post-war years papers concentrated on the history and future of the European combatants, while later papers tended to emphasize topics in Canadian history including Icelandic settlement in Manitoba and the growth of Responsible Government. Several club members later become prominent in Canadian academic and political circles, including Lower, Jack Pickersgill, Margaret Prang, Kenneth McNaught, Carl Berger, Harry Crowe, Lloyd Axworthy and Howard Pawley.
