Hol­land Col­lege got name right

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

In 1968, the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment ap­pointed the Col­lege Plan­ning Com­mit­tee to or­ga­nize the es­tab­lish­ment of a col­lege of ap­plied arts and tech­nol­ogy. As one of its man­dates, the com­mit­tee needed to pro­vide a name for the in­sti­tu­tion.

Fred Hyn­d­man pro­posed the name of Sa­muel Hol­land and ex­plained the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of Cap­tain Hol­land and how ap­pro­pri­ate the name would be for this in­sti­tu­tion. The com­mit­tee greeted the pro­posal with en­thu­si­asm and, as they say, the rest is history. Glenn Palmer, Char­lot­te­town
