Excerpt from Calendar of Acadia University: Wolfville, Nova Scotia, 1903-1904
In 1851 the power of appointing the Governors was transferred from the Education Society to the Baptist Convention of the Maritime Provinces. The developments of succeeding years made it necessary that various amendments to the original Charter should be Obtained. In order to avoid confusion and bring the Act Of Incorporation into more complete harmony with existing conditions, a general revision and consolidation Of the different Acts relating to the College was proposed by the Board Of Governors. The Report of the Committee Of the Board having been adopted by the Governors, was referred to the Convention. That body, at its meeting in Yarmouth in August, 1890, after suggesting some modifications, approved the report and instructed the Governors to apply to the Legislature Of Nova Scotia for the necessary legislation. Accordingly a bill embodying the proposed alterations was passed by the two Houses at the Session of 1891, and received the signa ture Of the lieutenant-governor on the 19th May in the same year. A Copy of the Revised Charter is appended.
