Nearly 200 years of history


We've come a long way.

These pages outline some of the discoveries, achievements and other events that McGill and McGillians have played a part in for nearly two centuries. For brevity's sake, we've omitted some momentous milestones: Nobel Prizes, groundbreaking discoveries and lasting contributions to human endeavour in all its forms. ?But we hope that between the advancement of atomic theory, the creation of three major sports, and the 50 or so other stories featured on this site, you'll gain some insight into the great careers and innovations that McGill helped spark.
