The Soldiers' Tower
January 21, 1921, the Memorial Committee of the University of Toronto Alumni Association
wrote a letter appealing for funds to build a wartime memorial. The result was
the Soldiers' Tower, a lasting monument to those members of
the U of T community who sacrificed their lives for freedom. The names of those
who lost their lives in service are carved in the stone walls of the archway and
the adjacent screen of the tower.
the years, the elements have taken their toll on the tower and it is now in great
need of maintenance, upkeep and improvements. The university is seeking to restore
the tower to its former glory, ensuring that it will continue to convey a message
of vigilance and remembrance.
