Name of creator
Post-secondary education in the city of Lethbridge, Alberta was first proposed in 1951. In 1957, Lethbridge Junior College was established, and by 1962 it had completed construction of its own campus. It was later renamed Lethbridge Community College. The College, the City of Lethbridge, and the government of Alberta all recognized the need for a degree-granting university, and on January 1, 1967, the University of Lethbridge came into being. Classes began later that year, and in 1969 construction of the University's campus on the west bank of the Old Man River began.
Scope and content
Consists of briefs, reports, and yearbooks of Lethbridge Junior College; correspondence of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce concerning higher education; minutes and papers of the College-University Liaison Committee and the City-University Liaison Committee; reports, videotapes, and an audio cassette concerning the selection of the University site; and biographies of the founding faculty.
