“No one person has seen all of Dalhousie: all its iterations, all the personalities that helped to form it and have, in turn, been formed by it. This book is a witness to the University’s two hundred years. It is a cloud chamber, a place where transformation in time and space has been frozen, offering glimpses into multiply memories.”
