The Spike or Victoria College Review 1938
Some years ago Mr. G. F. Dixon discovered that Victoria College possessed no permanent record of the names of those students who attended lectures there during any part of the period 1899-1915 inclusive. Mr. Dixon undertook to compile a list, and it has been a lengthy task involving a great deal of work. From the Registrar's receipt books for fees paid by students he was able to draw up the lists for the years 1899-1913 inclusive, but unfortunately the records for the years 1914-15 had already been destroyed. Lists of students who entered V.U.C. during each of the years 1899-1910 inclusive have already appeared in "Spike," and in continuation of the work the list of those who entered the College in the year 1911 is submitted herewith. Mr. Dixon has explained that it is unfortunately not complete so far as years of actual attendance of some members are concerned because of the difficulty already mentioned, of ascertaining whether they were at V.U.C. after 1913.
There are ways in which further information can be obtained which will permit of the list being made complete, but Mr. Dixon has not been able to undertake this extra work for the time being. The same difficulty presents itself in respect of the lists for 1912 and 1913, both of which are in form for final checking. They will appear in a later issue of "Spike."
