uAlberta hunts for lost 1911 memorabilia

December 6, 2007

The University of Alberta is looking for a piece of its history, lost more than 25 years ago. A silk banner presented to the university in 1911 by Albert Henry George, who was at the time Governor-General of Canada, went missing during the university's 75th year (1983). It is believed to be a unique gift among Western Canada universities.  UofA has renewed the search for the banner with the hopes of finding it for next year's centenary celebrations.
