University of Toronto Roll of Service - 1914 - 1918 (no specific author credit.)


Cat No.:   CA0165:

Here is a complete list of men and women who were associated with the University of Toronto and who served in the Great War. This includes present and former Staff, Graduates, Undergraduates, former Students and those attending the Faculty of Education.

The major portion of the book is made up of four alphabetical lists in the categories:

Roll of Honor: Killed in Action or Died on Service & Died after Discharge, 1917 - 1920 in part from disabilities incurred on Service.

Roll of Service, 1914 - 1918, & Registered in the University after Returning from Active Service.

The Rolls of Honor give a narrative summary of each individual's service including the circumstances of their death. The Rolls of service give the specific's of the individual's service.

The book also contains a lengthy introduction which provides a summary history of the Universities functioning during the war years as well as the part played by the facilities which were used to aid the war effort.

Altogether there are entries for over 6,800 individuals (including those who entered the University after their service.) If you are seeking information on the Great War service of anyone who attended, or worked for, the University of Toronto then you are almost certain to find it here. (The book admits to not being able to find records for 105 members of the University who had been reported to be on active Service.)

We were asked, to dedicate this CD to the memory of George Van Wyke Laughton, MC, (b;7 July 1916 - d;11 June 1966.) a Canadian who served in the British 3rd Army, 34th Division, 26th Battalion, the Northumberland Fusiliers (the Tyneside Irish) during the Great War. See web site for his details. His entry is on p343 of the book. Please join with us to thank his grandson, Richard Van Wyck Laughton, for loaning us his copy of this wonderful book.

We also extend thanks to Joyce Johnston who had previously loaned us a supplement to the 1st edition of this book. The later publication (from which this CD is made) contains, and expands on, all the information from the supplement.
