In 1789 France exploded into Revolution, George Washington was elected first president of the United States, Fletcher Christian led the infamous Mutiny on H.M.S. Bounty, William Wilberforce began his crusade in the British House of Commons to abolish the slave trade, and Bishop Charles Inglis founded King’s College.
In 1846 the British Crown, which had supported the college with a yearly sum of 1000 pounds, withdrew their funding. It fell to a group of alumni to organize, and cover their alma mater’s shortfall. This is the origin of our Alumni Association, the oldest in Canada.
