Administrative history

Edward Joseph Kylie, BA 1901 (University College), was, at the outbreak of war in 1914, an associate professor in the Dept. of History. He enlisted as Captain Adjutant in the 147th (Canadian Greys) Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in December, 1915. In May, 1916 he succumbed to a bout of typhoid fever and pneumonia in Owen Sound, Ontario.

The Edward Kylie Trust was established in 1921 in his honour. Its object was to "provide a permanent scholarship, to be awarded from time to time, to a student in the Modern History Course in the University of Toronto, to enable him to pursue his studies in a British university. The funds are vested in in a board of five trustees who also conduct the examinations, and assign the scholarship under the Trust. The qualifications for election to a scholarship embrace both academic and general activities, the award being made to the candidate `most likely to occupy a position of leadership and influence in the community'" [University of Toronto Monthly, May, 1922, 341].
