Journal of Canadian Studies , Volume 37 - Issue 1 p. 109- 143
The Khaki University was a pioneering educational system established for Canadian soldiers during the First World War. Organized by Henry Marshall Tory, the Khaki University brought education to more than 50,000 soldier-students. Initially implemented to better the soldiers, this educational system was a key component in disseminating government policy, complementing the military power structure, keeping soldiers busy during the demobilization period, and imparting a nascent pride in the Canadian accomplishments during the war.
