Administrative history

The Hungarian Refugee Student Committee was established in December 1956 by the National Conference of Canadian Universities (NCCU) at the request of the Canadian Department of Citizenship and Immigration. Its mandate was to assess Hungarian refugee students, to facilitate their acquisition of English and French, and to direct them to Canadian universities and colleges. With financial aid from the federal government, the committee established an office in a government immigration hostel at 1162 St. Antoine St., Montreal in January 1957. The director was Matilde Elizabeth (Mrs. Frederick) Smith. Douglass Burns Clarke, vice-principal of Sir George Williams University, succeeded Maurice Beauchamp, o.m.i. of Ottawa University and T. H. Matthews of McGill University, as chair of the committee. (In 1965 the NCCU was renamed the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.)
