In honour of the Installation of Dr. Heather Munroe-Blum as McGill University's 16th Principal and 12th Vice-Chancellor, the McGill University Archives is pleased to present this virtual exhibit on the history and tradition of Installation at McGill University since 1829.

"...a long line of eminent and learned Principals," which forms the title of this virtual exhibit, is taken from the address given by McGill's first Principal, Archdeacon George Jehoshaphat Mountain, at his Installation on June 29, 1829. It expresses his hopeful vision for the future of McGill's leadership. The address is recorded in the minute book of the Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning. This virtual exhibit features key governance documents and evidence of an evolving University ritual, including historical research on past Installations, images, and programs.  [Enter the Virtual Exhibit]
