Administrative history

During the early 1830's Dr. Edward John Barker, a graduate of the London College of Medicine arrived with his family in Kingston. In his spare time he wrote for relaxation and Noble Palmer, publisher of the Spectator, a weekly with liberal leanings, persuaded Barker to edit his paper. Barker accepted and enjoyed the work so much he decided to establish his own paper. In 1833 he announced that a new publication, to be called The British Whig, would be published and on New Year's day, 1834, the first issue was produced. Originally a weekly, the paper soon changed to semi-weekly publication and eventually became a daily. Edward John Barker Pense, grandson of the founder, took over the paper in 1872, modernizing the printing equipment and erecting a new building to house the publication. In 1925, Senator William Rupert Davies purchased The British Whig and amalgamated it in 1926 with the Kingston Daily Standard, to become the Kingston Whig-Standard. Today the Kingston Whig-Standard remains the oldest continuously published newspaper in Canada.

General note

Frank Tindall (1909-5 October 1993) was a native of Solvay, New York and was one of the few great Canadian University coaches of the twentieth century. A former football and basketball star at Syracuse University, he was a football All-Eastern guard, All-America honourable and team MVP at Syracuse in 1932. Frank was recruited by the Toronto Argonaughts and named a Canadian Football League (CFL) 1933 All-Star in his rookie season and he was a member of their 1934 Grey Cup Championship team. Later, the Argos selected him to the All-TIme All-Star Squad (1921-1941) and he was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1985. Frank came to Queen's in 1939 to coach football, but WWII interrupted interuniversity sports. Frank returned to Queen's in 1948 to coach both football and basketball and established what became known as the 'Tindall Era'. As a signal of his status in the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union, the football coach-of-the-year trophy has borne his name since six years before he retired in 1975.
