Historical Note

From a letter written by Charles Fogel (1.1): In June 18, 1913, the Council of the University agreed to offer in 1913-14 courses of Latin, English, German, French, Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Mechanical Drawing, and it appointed a committee of five to report on the possible organization of an Arts and Sciences College. In February 1914, it was agreed to continue the previous courses in 1914 and to add a few more; but no decision was made as to the establishment of a College. On January 16, 1915, the Council did agree to such a College, the decision being able to be made because a building downtown at Niagara Square was offered to the University for such instruction. Courses were offered in 1915-16 under the auspices of the College.
