Title
The Education of a Principal Sir William Peterson – Principal of McGill (1895-1919)
Abstract
Sir William Peterson (1856-1921) served as Principal of McGill University from 1895 to 1919. The author examines Peterson’s education between 1865 and 1882 in Scotland, Germany and England, a period when educational opportunities were increasing but more were demanded. The author argues that Peterson's educational background throws light upon the development and character of one who contributed greatly to establishing the reputation of McGill amongst Nonh American universities.
