The University of Alberta, Calgary Associates was incorporated as a society in 1963 following an iniative by Dr. Malcolm G. Taylor, Principal of UAC. Dr. Taylor approached several law firms, petroleum companies and other Calgary businesses to solicit response to setting up the Associates. The objectives of the society were to promote public interest in the University of Alberta, Calgary, to assist in the university's long-range development plans, and to obtain financial assistance to further the objectives of the university and its library. The society was open to all person's, corporations or organizations who had an interest in promoting the objectives of the Associates, regardless of whether they were alumni of the University. J. Ross Henderson was the first Chairman. The society appears to have been active until 1966.
