Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Agricultural College War Memorial (Chancellor Matheson Road, Winnipeg)

A monument at the intersection of Chancellor Matheson Road and University Crescent, on the Fort Garry Campus of the University of Manitoba, commemorates students and staff of the Manitoba Agricultural College who were killed during military service in the First World War. Adjacent to a row of elm trees planted along Chancellor Matheson Road, the monument was unveiled at a ceremony held on 11 November 1923 and attended by Hugh Marshall Dyer (former Chair of the Board of Directors for the Manitoba Agricultural College), Louis Wilfred Moffit of Wesley College, and Premier John Bracken.
