The Memorial Gates were erected in 1927 in honour of those who served in the First World War from the University and in memory of those who did not return.

Bishop George Exton Lloyd dedicated the memorial gates on University of Saskatchewan campus. President W.C. Murray unveiled the tablet which commemorates dead of World War I. David R. Brown of Montreal, a partner of the firm of Brown & Vallance was selected as the architects to develop the new Master Plan for the University of Saskatchewan at Saskatoon in June 1909. These included St. Andrew's College (1922-23), the Chemistry Building (1922-24), the rebuilding of the Engineering Building (1925-26), and the Memorial Gates (1927-28). Gentil Jules Kamiel Verbeke, who taught in the faculty of Agricultural Engineering, acted as Clerk-of-Works and site supervisor for many of the new buildings and the Memorial Gates.
