It was on this date in 1909 that the Headquarters of the Medical & Chirurgical Faculty were dedicated. Speakers included Sir William Osler, M.D. who gave the evening speech, including this passage.
It does not often happen that a man is called upon to participate in the dedication of a Hall to himself. More often it is a posthumous honour for which the thanks are tendered by relatives or friends. It is difficult for me to express the deep gratitude I feel for this singular mark of affection on your part.
Happy 106th Anniversary to our dear beautiful building.
