Administrative history

By 1904, the movement for higher education in British Columbia had given rise to several organizations interested in pursuing the cause. In 1904, the University Graduates' Society convened in Vancouver to "make and co-operate in all efforts to secure a University (with endowments) for British Columbia." Several meetings of the Society were held with most of the discussion focusing on a proposed land endowment for a provincial university. Unfortunately, the local government was not yet prepared to provide the requisite funding for such an undertaking. However, the activity of the Society did help establish McGill University College of British Columbia in 1906.
