James McGill

I sometimes walk through the campus of McGill University. This sculpture of  James McGill was placed there after I graduated (some time in the last century). With the grey rainy days we have been having, he seems appropriately dressed for the weather.

McGill left a bequest for the establishment of a college which ultimately bore his name.

  1. Looks as though he's walking through a stiff breeze, too! Had to smile at your comment about how long ago you graduated! (Still learning after all these years...)

  3. Walking in the wind - refreshingly different statue from the more traditional, stiff ones. I first thought that you had made a mistake about the time of your graduation, but then realized and it was last century for me, too!
