Toronto University

Projected in 1797, and chartered, 1827, as King's

College, mainly through the efforts of Bishop Strachan. The charter was

amended in 1837, as the result of an agitation against its theological

bias. In 1850 the university was completely secularized; and in 1853 the

institution received its present name. In 1887 the charter was again

amended. Victoria, Knox, St. Michaels, and Wycliffe colleges were

affiliated with the university in that year; and Trinity in 1903.

Further changes were made in the government of the university in 1906.
