DALHOUSIE COLLEGE was founded by the Earl of Dalhousie in 1821, " for the education of youth in the higher branches of science and literature.”

The original endowment was derived from funds collected at the port of Castine, Maine, during its occupation in 1814 by Sir John C. Sherbrooke, then Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia. These funds the British Government authorized the Earl of Dalhousie, Sir John's successor, to expend "in defraying the

By an Act passed in 1841, University powers were conferred on the College, and the appointment of the Governors was vested in the Lieutenant-Governor and Council.

In 1843 President McCulloch died, and in 1845 the College was closed, the Governors considering it “advisable to allow the funds of the institution to accumulate.”

In 1848 an Act was passed authorizing the LieutenantGovernor and Council to appoint a new Board of Governors “to take such steps for rendering the institution useful and efficient as to His Excellency may seem fit.” This Board, from 1849 to 1859, employed the funds of the University to support a High School.

In 1856 the Arts department of the Gorham College, Liverpool, was transferred to this College, "with a view to the
