The Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectures Digital Collection

The Queen’s University Chancellor Dunning Trust was established in 1946 by an anonymous donor to “promote understanding and appreciation of the supreme importance of the dignity, freedom and responsibility of the individual person in human society.” Since 1948, the Trust has brought well-known academics, politicians, activists, and intellectuals from around the world and Canada to Queen’s for visits ranging from a few days to several weeks.
