English The McGill University College
of British Columbia
In 1894, at the instance of friends of higher education in
the Province, who desired such relations between local high
schools and universities in other parts of the Empire as would
_tend to ihe inception and promotion of university work in
British Columbia, legislation was passed which empowered the
affiliation of high schools to recognized universities; and this
was supplemented in 1896 by an act providing for the incorporation of high schools as colleges in accordance with the charters
and constitutions of such universities. Under these enactments Vancouver High School became Vancouver College, and
was admitted to affiliation for the First Year in Arts by the
Corporation of McGill University, which had in the meantime
secured such extension of its charter powers as made possible the
admission of extra-Provincial colleges to the relation of affiliation. Work was begun under this relation in 1899, and by 1902
the work had grown so, and was of such a character that an
extension of affiliation was granted, to cover the first two years
in Arts and the University Intermediate Examination. This
year Victoria College, too> applied for and obtained affiliation
covering the First Year inrArts. Later the need of university
connection more intimate still and essential than that of affiliation and also of extension df the scope of work came to be felt
and urged, and the result of much careful urging and deliberation was the passage in 1906 of local legislation (1) enacting
that "the Governors, Principal, and Fellows of McGill College
and University may exercise and enjoy in the Province of British
Columbia all the powers, rights, privileges, and functions con-
'ferred upon them by the charter granted to them by His late
Majesty, King George IV., in the second year of his reign, and
amended by Her late Majesty, Queen Victoria, in the sixteenth
year of her reign;" and (2) authorizing the incorporation of a
body politic under the name of "The Royal Institution for the
Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, whereby the
Royal Institution shall undertake the conduct or administration
of any part of the higher education work now carried on by
such Boards," and also to "establish at such place in British
Columbia as McGill University may designate a College for the 12 UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
higher education of men and women, such College, in respect
of courses of study and examinations, to be deemed a College
of McGill University, and the instruction given to its students
to be of the same standard as that given in like subjects at
McGill University at Montreal."
In pursuance of the objects of its foundation, therefore,
the Royal Institution established in 1906 at Vancouver the
McGill University College of British Columbia (by agreement
with the Board of School Trustees) taking over the Arts work
previously done by the Vancouver College, with extension of
the scope and of the options allowed, adding two years of Applied Science, and in 1908 the Third Year in Arts.
In 1907 the act was amended so as to allow of the establishment of Colleges of the Royal Institution in other cities in
the Province, and in the following year the College at Victoria,
hitherto directly affiliated to McGill, came under the control
of the Royal Institution as a part of the McGill University
College of British Columbia, affording courses in the first two
years in Arts.
Under the Act of the Legislature of the Province of British
Columbia, the Royal Institution for the Advancement of
Learning of British Columbia is constituted a body corporate)
with all the usual rights and privileges of corporate bodies.
The members of the Royal Institution are the Governors
of the College, and, as such, control the finances, make statutes
and by-laws, appoint professors, and perform all other administrative duties.
The President of the Royal Institution is ex-officio Chancellor of the College.
The Principal is the Academic head and Chief Administrative Officer. He is appointed by the Board of Governors,
of which body he is a member, ex-officio.
The statutes and regulations have been framed on the most
liberal principles, with a view to providing, as far as possible,
for all classes of persons, opportunity for the attainment of
mental culture.
The College is undenominational in character. COURSES OF STUDY—THE SESSION 13
The College offers instruction in the first, second and third
years of the Arts Course, and in the first and second years of
the Course in Applied Science of McGill University. The
standard of work is that of McGill University, all the examinations being conducted by the Examining Board of that institu-.
tion, which includes all the members of the local staff. Candidates passing the examinations at the end of any year in
either Arts or Applied Science are admitted to the next year
of McGill University without further examination.
The Courses in Arts are open to men and women on-equal
The University Year or Session is divided into two terms,
the first extending to the Christmas vacation, and the second
from the expiry of the Christmas vacation to the end of the
Sessional Examinations in May.
The Session of 1910-1911 will begin on Monday, October
Two matriculation examinations will be held in 1910, the
first commencing on Monday, June 13th, and the second on
Friday,, September 23rd.
Summer Glasses.—During the months of May and June, a
series of Summer Classes will be conducted, intended mainly,
in the first instance, to meet the requirements of students in
the first two years of their course. The subjects offered in the
Faculty of Arts are English, Latin, Greek, Mathematics, Physics,
Chemistry, Logic, Psychology, French and German.
Good board and lodging can be obtained in the vicinity
of the College buildings at a cost of from $22.00 per month
upwards; or, separately, board at $15.00 to $21.00 per month,
rooms at $7.00 to $12.00 per month.
A list of suitable boarding and lodging houses, the sanitary
conditions of which are required to be properly certified, is
prepared, and may be obtained on application to the Registrar. 14 UNIVERSITY   COLLEGE   OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA
Except under special circumstances, no student under the
age of sixteen is admitted to the first year courses in Arts or
Applied Science, or under the age of seventeen to the second
Students are classified as Undergraduates, Conditioned
Students and Partial Students.
Undergraduates are matriculated students who are pursuing a full undergraduate course of study leading to a degree.
In order to obtain undergraduate standing, a candidate
must have passed the matriculation examination of the University or some other examination accepted in lieu thereof (see
page 16) and have registered as a matriculated undergraduate.
Conditioned Students are those with defective entrance qualifications who are pursuing a full undergraduate course of study
and at the same time seeking to obtain undergraduate standing.
The conditions must be removed before the student can be admitted to the Second Year.
Partial Students are those who, not belonging to one of the
above classes of students, are pursuing a course of study in the
College. Except as provided below, such students may, subject
to the approval of the Professor, attend any class without previous examination.
Persons who wish to take a partial course in the first year
of the Faculty of Arts must, if under the age of eighteen years,
first present to the Principal certificates of having taken a satisfactory course of school instruction. In order to obtain
admission to the classes in Erench, intending students must
have passed the University matriculation examination, or an
equivalent examination, in that subject.
Partial students who subsequently obtain undergraduate
standing by passing the matriculation examination may, as
undergraduates, be exempted, at the discretion of the Faculty,
from any particular course or courses of lectures which they
may have attended as partial students and in which they have
passed the sessional examinations. MATRICULATION  EXAMINATION •' 15
1. Matriculation Examinations, which are those of McGill
University, are held only in June and September.
All inquiries relating to the examinations should he addressed to the Registrar.
2. Every candidate for examination is required to fill up
an application form and return the same with the necessary
fee one month before the examination. Blank forms may be obtained from the Registrar.
3. In order to obtain an examination at a local centre,
any Headmaster or other person must, before May 1st, submit
to the Registrar of McGill University, the name of some suitable person, preferably a university graduate, who is willing to
act as deputy examiner, i.e., receive the questions, hold the examinations and forward the answers to Montreal. The University
will be>esponsible for no other local expenses than the payment
of the deputy examiners.
4. The examination may be taken in two parts, candidates
being free to make such a division of the subjects as may best
suit their convenience. Credit will be given for any subjects
passed at the first attempt, but unless all the requirements are
completed, or at least all but two subjects, at the second, the
whole will have to be taken over again; English Grammar,JEis-
tory and Arithmetic, if once passed, being, howeverj excepted.
For the purposes of this regulation, the June and September
examinations shall be counted as one.
5. Candidates who at the September examination fail in a
small part only of the whole examination may, if their general
standing is sufficiently high, be allowed to enter the First Year
as conditioned students. Those who are conditioned in a language must attend a special tutorial class during their first session,
; for which a fee of $10 is exigible. Any student, so conditioned,
who fails to attend this class with regularity, will not be allowed
to present himself for examination. The standing of a conditioned student, will not as a rule be granted to any who have
not presented themselves for examination in September, nor to
those who have not shown sufficient knowledge of the subject
or subjects in which they failed to justify the examiners in
making a favorable recommendation. Conditioned students
can obtain full undergraduate standing by passing at a subsequent June or September   matriculation   examination in the 18 UNIVERSITY  COLLEGE   OF   BRITISH   COLUMBIA
subject or subjects in which they failed, and will not be permitted to enter the Second Year of their course of study until
they have satisfied all matriculation requirements.
6. When two or more books or -subjects are prescribed for
one examination it is necessary to pass in each.
7. A candidate in order to pass must obtain at least 40 per
cent, of the total number of marks allowed for each subject.
8. In view of the precautions taken to prevent mistakes,
no request for the re-examination of a paper shall be granted
except on payment of a fee of one dollar.
9. Certificates of having passed the following examinations will, if submitted to the Registrar, be accepted pro tanto
in lieu of the matriculation examination, i.e., in so far as the
subjects and standard are, to the satisfaction of the Board of
Matriculation examiners, the same as or equivalent to those
required for the matriculation examination of this University.
Candidates offering certificates which are not a full equivalent

then enter the Faculty of Applied Science and devote the remaining three years entirely to the work of this Faculty. The special
Summer courses mentioned are necessary in order to overtake the
work in Descriptive Geometry, Drawing and Shopwork, which
form part of the regular courses of the first two years in Applied
Science. This work must be taken in two periods of one month
-each (in^the month of May), at the close of the regular work of
the First and Second Years in the Faculty of Arts.
All students in the First and Second Years of the double
course must, on the 31st of March, notify the Principal that
they are taking this double course and will consequently enter
themselves for the summer work in question at the close of the
regular work of the session.

accurate weighing. Considerable attention is also devoted to
the subject of qualitative analysis. One period a week for all
students of Engineering.
This course deals with the methods of representing objects
on one plane so that their true dimensions may be accurately
scaled. It discusses the methods employed in the graphical solution of the various problems arising in engineering design, and
deals generally with the principles underlying all constructive
drawing. The methods taught are illustrated by applications to
practical problems. It is the aim of the work to develop the
imagination in respect to the power of mentally pictui'ing unseen objects, and, incidentally, precision in the use of the drawing instruments is attained.

317. An additional course, involving four laboratory periods per week with lectures, will be given in May and June for
students in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.
The course in shopwork is intended to afford some preparation for that study of workship practice on a commercial scale
which every engineer has to carry out for himself. With this end
in view, the student works in the various shops of the department, and completes in each a series of practical exercises. He
thus obtains some knowledge of the nature and properties of the
various materials he employs; he Teceives systematic instruction
in the use and care of the more important hand and machine
tools; and he acquires some manual skill.
The instruction thus obtained must, however, be continued
and supplemented. For this purpose students are expected to
spend the greater portion of each long vacation in gaining practical experience in engineering workshops outside the University.
Students are required to read and make notes of selected
portions of certain text-books, and articles in technical journals,
illustrative of the work done in each shop.
In connection with his shopwork each student is required to
keep a record of his work.   These records or notes are made on COURSES OF LECTURES 53
standard forms. These are handed in to the Shop Instructor
at the close of each period of work, and, together with diligence
and the results of a brief written examination, form the basis
on which credit for shopwork is assigned.
The work of the various shops is carried out under the direction of the Professor of Mechanical Engineering. The following are the subjects of instruction:
Carpentry and Wood Turning.—Sharpening and care of w6bd-
working tools; sawing, planing and paring to size; preparation
of flat surfaces, parallel strips, and rectangular blocks; construction of the principal joints employed in carpentry and joiner
work, such as end and middle lap joints, end and middle mortise and tenon joints, mitres, and dado and sash joints; dovetailing; scarfing; joints used in roof and girder work; wood-
turning; use of wood-turning tools.
Smith-work.—The forge and its tools; use and care of
smith's tools; management of fire; use of anvil and swage-
block; drawing taper, square and parallel work; bending, upsetting, hardening, and tempering tools for forge and machine
work; tempering drills, dies, taps, and springs.
Foundry Work.—Moulders' tools and materials used in
foundry work; the cupola; the brass furnace; preparation of
moulding sand; boxes and flasks; core-making; use of core-
irons ; bench moulding; blackening, coring and finishing moulds;
vents, gates and risers; floor moulding; open sand work; melting and pouring metal; mixtures for iron and brass casting.
