Course Description

The University of Calgary turned 50 in 2016, but actually, the history of the university goes back to 1906. Have you ever wondered how and why the buildings are named, where the art and sculptures come from, when the first computers were used on campus, the origin of  'the rock' or how the university community has addressed social change? You are invited to discover the answers to these and other questions in a course that will include a walking tour of some of the buildings on campus, a visit to the University Archives, and a chance to look through archival records of the university’s past.

Course Details

Karen Buckley is an Associate Archivist who has worked in the University Archives since 1996.  She knows where all the interesting records are.
