The Gault Estate passed to McGill University in 1958 through a bequest from Brigadier Andrew Hamilton Gault that specified:
"...that its beauties and amenities may be preserved for all time to come,
not only to the immediate interests of the university itself, but through its corridors of learning,
as a great heritage for the benefit and enjoyment of the youth of Canada."
