The Visionaries by bkbinthecity

The Visionaries

Located on the grounds of the University of Alberta campus is this statue of the two men responsible for establishing the University.
Seated is Alexander Rutherford the first Premier of Alberta and standing is Henry Tory the first President of the University of Alberta.
These two men were instrumental in founding the University in 1908.
They look very learned, and cold!
