Fleming College Has Special Ceremony On 100th Aniversary Of Sir Sandford Fleming's Death

On the 100th anniversary of his death, Sir Sandford Fleming’s life and legacy were celebrated with a ceremony and the unveiling of a portrait of historic significance Wednesday (July 22nd) at the Sutherland Campus.

Fleming College President Dr. Tony Tilly gratefully accepted a portrait of Fleming, on long-term loan by the Royal Canadian Institute For the Advancement of Science (RCI)—the oldest scientific society in Canada and one that Fleming and a small group of civil engineers, architects and surveyors founded in 1849.

Fleming’s great-great-grandson, Jock Fleming, Councillor of the RCI, and Helle Tosine, President of the RCI, presented the portrait to Dr. Tilly.

The portrait was painted in the early 1890s by J.W.L. Forster, the leading Canadian portrait artist of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
