We recently received a shipment of books from our Macdonald campus library for a new digitization project we’re starting up this summer. While going through the volumes we came across the unusual find of what we think is a pressed corsage!
The Macdonald College magazine was published between 1910 and 1932 by the students and contained articles on student activities and other various topics, specifically agricultural ones. The magazine also contains a number of advertisements for local businesses which will be valuable in the student of Montreal and McGill history. This spring we’ll be digitizing the full run and making it available online.
