“In Honor, Chivalrous; In Duty, Valorous;
 In all things Noble, To the Heart’s Core, Clean.”

Bishop's Remembers is a memorial archive of Bishop’s students, alumni, staff, and faculty who died in service to their country during World War I (1914-1918) and World War II (1939-1945).

Inspired in part by the McGill Remembers website launched by the McGill University Archives, Bishop's Remembers is a compilation of researched records, images, stories, and other documents relating to the university community's service.

This project focuses closely on the individual biographies of those who served. As a smaller university, Bishop’s allows the opportunity to discover, in greater detail, who our soldiers were before they were soldiers. As a result, this project aims to not only pay tribute to those who served, but also emphasize the fond relationship our school has shared with its community throughout history.
