In 1886, SIR WILLIAM Young, one of the oldest and best friends of the College, subscribed $20,000 to start a Building Fund. In 1887, Sir Wm. Young bequeathed to the University half the residue of his estate together with a Prize Fund of $4000, and the amount remaining unpaid of his subscription to the New Building. The following are extracts from his will :
“I bequeath to the Governors of Dalhousie College at Halifax, the sum of $4000 to be kept continually invested by them, and that they shall apply the income derived therefrom in founding and maintaining a prize of a gold medal of the value of $50, to be called Sir William Young's medal, and to be annually awarded for scholastic eminence, and to have the recipient's name engraved thereon, with the year of his attendance at College, and in founding and maintaining such other prizes for distribution among the students of said College as the Governors may from time to time approve.”
Having agreed and promised to the Governors of Dalhousie College to pay them the sum of $20,000 to aid in the erection of their building now in progress, I direct my executors to pay the said sum from time to time as it may be required by the said Governors.”
“ All the rest and residue of my estate I direct my executors to divide into two even and equal parts or shares, and to pay over one such part or share to
and the other part or share to the Governors of Dalhousie College at Halifax, for the general purposes of said College."
“In the event of my having paid to Dalhousie College during my life-time any part of said sum of $20,000 hereinbefore mentioned, as agreed to be paid to them to aid in the erection of the college buildings, I do direct my executors to pay to said Governors the balance only, if any, that may be due on said sum at the time of my decease.”
The new College in course of erection will be completed in September. It will be one of the most commodious and comfortable college buildings in Canada. For its completion the Governors will require about $25,000 in addition to the money now in hand. In response to an appeal for this amount about ten thousand dollars have already been subscribed, and the Governors hope that the Alumni and other friends of Dalhousie will heartily respond to their call. They are quite confident that if they can complete and pay for the new building this year, the University will enter upon an era of prosperity such as it never before enjoyed. They therefore earnestly call the attention of all the friends of Dalhousie to this important matter.
An earnest, united effort at the present time will place the University in a position certain to command success.
