1851 - The Colonial Church Chronicle, and Missionary Journal (Volume V)

TORONTO.—Trinity College—Our readers will remember the visit of the Bishop of Toronto to this country last year, for the purpose of obtaining support for his project of founding a university in connexion with the Church of England. The plan was so well received and so heartily supported, especially in the colony itself, that the building was immediately commenced, and at this time it approaches to completion. Meanwhile, it was considered desirable not to delay the opening of the college courses ; and with a view therefore to the commencement of academical business, a Provost and two Professors have been already appointed. The church university will therefore, ere long, be opened with the fairest prospect of success. The present staff consists of—1. Provost: The Rev. George Whitaker, M.A., Queen’s College, Cambridge; 1st class in classical tripos, 1833. 2. Classical Professor: Rev. Edward St. John Parry, M.A., Balliol College, Oxford ; 1st class classics, 1848 ; gained the English essay, 1849; Latin essay, 1850. 3. Mathematical Professor: George Clerke Irving, Esq., B.A., scholar of St. John’s College, Cambridge; 8th wrangler, 1850. Mr. Whitaker and Mr. Parry sailed by the Europa, on the 18th ult., for Boston, on their way to Toronto, and Mr. Irving is preparing to follow immediately.”
