1929 | McGill administration takes measures to limit the number of Jewish students admitted to McGill.

In the early 1920s, the population of Jewish students at McGill was increasing, with 25% of Arts, 15% of medicine, and 40% of law students indicating their religion as Jewish. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, as anti-semitism was on the rise in Europe, the faculties of medicine and law instituted a quota system limiting the number of Jewish students admitted. Meanwhile, the Faculty of Arts held Jewish students to higher academic standards.
