Huron University College
Huron University College is the oldest and founding element of the University of Western Ontario. Since 1863 the College has trained Anglican clergy, and for the past fifty years it has also welcomed those seeking a liberal arts education.
Over one-fifth of the Canadian Anglican chaplains who served in the First and Second World Wars were trained at Huron. Although the Huron Chapel contains a plaque to the memory of those who died in the First World War it contained no less than eight errors, and there was no plaque to commemorate those who died in the Second World War—despite the fact that the tower beside the Chapel is called THE MEMORIAL TOWER.
While a student at Huron, McCreery researched the names of all those who had served and died during the two world wars of the last century. After two and a half years of work - and raising the money for the new bronze plaque - the project was complete.
On 11 November 1997 a plaque was unveiled commemorating the lives of 18 members of the Huron College community who gave their lives in, or as the result of services rendered during the First and Second World Wars.
