    Don’t forget the University of Manitoba Archives is hosting an exhibit celebrating the 140th, “The Legacy of Alexander Kennedy Isbister,” Monday to Friday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, 330 Elizabeth Dafoe Library. Isbister, of Metis heritage, started the University in the direction of acceptance of all students through his gift of scholarship funds & his library. His openness to education for all students was an idea that was well before his time.
