Keys to History
The segregation of men and women at McGill can be seen clearly in this photograph of students enrolled in the first year of the science program in 1899. However, the first breaches had already been opened. In 1892, Carrie Derick was hired as a lecturer in the Botany Department of the university; she became an assistant professor in 1904.
