Queen’s Remembers

Queen’s Remembers is an initiative which commemorates those who have made significant and noteworthy contributions to the history of Queen’s University. These groups are remembered and recognized through commemorative plinths installed across campus – steel pillars which hold either a sturdy weather proof book containing pages of text and images or a simple plaque with no pages, depending on the layout and the subject. The plinths are designed to help staff and faculty, students, and other visitors to the campus form a more complete picture of the history of Queen’s.

The first plinth was unveiled in October 2017, honouring the Indigenous Peoples upon whose traditional lands Queen’s was built – the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee. The plinth is located on McGibbon Walk, between Douglas Library and Ontario Hall.
