University of Alberta, 2006 - Biography & Autobiography - 776 pages
"This country fascinates me.everything is new; the people young, and the conviction grows that great things are bound to happen in this rich new country." Henry Marshall Tory undoubtedly included the creation of the University of Alberta among these "great things." His drive for excellence and his sense of exhilaration clearly transferred to the generations of students who come to life in I Was There. First-person stories and period photographs present a unique insight into university lore from the vantage point of those who were most intimately involved in making the university what it is today: the students and alumni.
