University of Victoria College Course Cards


These lecture cards belonged to the student W.G. Harrison. Medical students at the University of Victoria College used cards such as these as entrance tickets to course lectures. Professors would sign the cards to indicate the student’s attendance at lectures.

The dates indicate that Harrison attended courses such as “Materia Medica and Therapeutics” and “Principles and Practices of Medicine” during three separate sessions, between 1866-1869.
