Dates of existence



The Ottawa Ladies College was established in 1869 by Henry Franklin Bronson. The aim of the College, according to its mandate, was to develop strong, intelligent and cultured women, with enrolment beginning at grade one. There was also an opportunity for a more continuing education with the girls remaining at the College into their late adolescence. Among the more prominent figures involved with the Ottawa Ladies College was H.M Tory who was President in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Tory became the first President of Carleton College in 1942. In 1914 the Ottawa Ladies College opened the doors to its new facility on First Avenue, in the Glebe. During the Second World War, the College was turned over to The Department of National Defence. In 1946 the building was declared surplus by the Department of National Defence and was purchased for the use of Carleton College.
