Dalhousie Originals

They inspired, challenged and strengthened Dalhousie and the world

The story of Dalhousie’s 200 years evolves from the stories of our people — the pioneers, innovators, creators and thinkers whose contributions and actions have made us what we are today. These are our graduates, faculty, students, staff and friends. And, collectively, they are the Dalhousie Originals.

Each week during Dal’s anniversary year in 2018, we were introduced to 52 people who inspired us, challenged us and helped build Dalhousie into a national and international post-secondary institution.
