Spine title: A history of Trinity College, Toronto, 1852-1952.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"The Founder of Trinity Colleg and those associated with him had certain ideals of education of which we need to be reminded from time to time. It is well also to recall how their successors sought to maintain those ideals in the changed conditions of later days.
