   schema:reviewBody ""The University of Toronto is Canada's leading university and one of Canada's most important cultural and scientific institutions. In this history of the University from its origin as King's College in 1827 to the present, Martin Friedland brings personalities, events, and changing visions and ideas into a remarkable synthesis. His scholarly yet highly readable account presents colourful presidents, professors, and students, notable intellectual figures from Daniel Wilson to Northrop Frye and Marshall McLuhan, and dramatic turning points such as the admission of women in the 1880s, the University College fire of 1890, the discovery of insulin, involvement in the two world wars, the student protests of the 1960s, and the successful renewal of the 1980s and 1990s." "The first full treatment of the subject in seventy-five years, The University of Toronto: A History is published to coincide with the University's 175th anniversary. Anyone who attended the University of Toronto or who is interested in the growth of Canada's intellectual heritage will enjoy this authoritative and engaging work."--Jacket." ;
