$3-million gift for McMaster Wilson Centre for Canadian History

November 5, 2008

McMaster University chancellor Lynton (Red) Wilson announced yesterday a $2.5-million donation to the university's Wilson Centre for Canadian History. Wilson says "it is time to refresh and renew the way Canadians study and celebrate their history." Wilson is one of McMaster's most generous donors; his gifts include a $10-million commitment made last year towards a new liberal arts building on campus.
