This exhibit highlights the achievements and sacrifices of individuals from the University, and examines the U of S community’s role in the war effort, the War’s impact on campus life and education, and the legacy of the War that is evident in the memorials throughout campus.

Vimy - Battle. Memorial. Icon.
A travelling exhibition from the Canadian War Museum
For Canadians, Vimy Ridge is layered with multiple meanings: a bloody battlefield victory at the height of the First World War in France, the site of Canada’s best-known memorial to the conflict and a symbol of evolving nationhood. This new graphic presentation richly illustrates these three themes on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation.
Opening April 9, 2017, on the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
This exhibit is on display until December 15th, 2017.
Fostering a Vision for Canada: The Diefenbaker Legacy
The gallery also features two replica rooms that capture Canadian political life as it was during the latter 1950s and early 1960s. The Prime Minister’s Office depicts the East Block Office as it appeared during Diefenbaker’s tenure as Prime Minister. It features original and reproduction furniture, as well as personal items belonging to Diefenbaker. The Privy Council Chamber illustrates the cabinet meeting room, featuring replications of Confederation era furniture and original signed photographs of the first twelve Canadian Prime Ministers. The replica rooms were recently retrofitted with iPads, containing speech excerpts, room descriptions and a broad selection of historical photographs adding an interactive component for visitors.
This is an ongoing exhibit.
