Queen's Encyclopedia is a reference tool documenting Queen's University, its history, and its people.
Each entry is significant to Queen's history and its evolution as both an academic institution and a community.
A rich legacy of academic excellence, a distinctive learning environment that is built on the philosophy that not all lessons are learned in the classroom, an unrivaled spirit, strong sense of community, and social purpose are hallmarks of Queen's. This Encyclopedia documents how these characteristics came to define the university.
Above all, the Encyclopedia is a platform to share stories and information that illustrate what makes Queen's uniquely Queen's.
This is the second version of the Queen's online encyclopedia. The main sources used for production of the original, much of which is maintained here, were Herbert Hamilton’s Queen’s! Queen’s! Queen’s! and Queen’s University at Kingston: Volumes I and II, all of which are profiled within (see Books about Queen's).
