Harry S. Crowe Scholarship
Established by the Class of ’53 in honour of their professor, Harry S. Crowe, Senior Stick in 1942 and recipient of the Military Cross for bravery during World War II, this scholarship will be awarded to a student in the Faculty of Arts who has completed at least 30 credit hours and who is continuing studies at The University of Winnipeg. Dr. Crowe was the Gold Medalist in Arts and Science at The University of Manitoba in 1946, and he returned to United College to teach after graduate work in History at the University of Toronto and Columbia University. The Class of 1953 elected him Honourary President. An inspiring teacher, both learned and compassionate, he encouraged students to defend academic freedom both in and outside the classroom, and by his example, to take seriously their responsibilities as citizens.
