Title: University Club of Winnipeg fonds

Dates: 1913-1914

Extent: 5 cm of textual records

Administrative History: The University Club of Winnipeg was formed in 1913. Membership was open to male university graduates living in Winnipeg. The object of the Club was to bring together the University men of the community. Each member was charged an initial fee of $50.00 and an additional $25.00 in annual dues. Judge Cameron was elected permanent Chairman in 1913. The Club planned to purchase and renovate the Major Bell house at the corner of Carlton and York Streets. On 18 December 1914, W. Sanford Evans, president and Jasper Halpenny, M.D., secretary, issued a notice stating that plans for the Club and club quarters were on hold until the war ended. There is no evidence that the Club was ever revived.
