Macdonald College is a Canadian institution of higher learning created in 1905 in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec on the western tip of the Island of Montreal. Planned and funded completely by William C. Macdonald, who also provided a $2 million operating endowment, it was designed by architects Alexander Cowper Hutchison and George W. Wood. Far surpassing the Ontario Agricultural College, Macdonald College was the largest in Canada and in its day was one of the most modern agricultural colleges in the world. After two years of planning and construction, the college opened its doors to students in the fall of 1907 under principal James Wilson Robertson.
