University College, post-World War I

In honour of UC History Week, here is a quotation from a famous novel which mentions University College:

“In the autumn of 1919 I entered University College, in the University of Toronto, as an honours student in history. I was not properly qualified, but five professors talked to me for an hour and decided to admit me based on some special ruling invoked on behalf of a number of men who had been abroad fighting.”
Fifth Business / Robertson Davies (1970)
