University Description
The founding of a colonial college had long been the desire of John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada.[7][8] As an Oxford-educated military commander who had fought in the American Revolutionary War, Simcoe believed a college was needed to counter the spread of republicanism from the United States.[8] The Upper Canada Executive Committee recommended in 1798 that a college be established in York, the colonial capital.
