This history attempts to provide answers to a number of questions: why did Guelph grow and develop when other centres such as Rockwood, Georgetown or Hespeler remained much smaller? Why, on the other hand, given the strenuous efforts of the business community to promote Guelph's growth, did it never achieve the size and dominant position to which its leaders aspired? What were the ideologies, strategies, and consequences of growth and the failure of dominance? Finally, what were the periods and nature of the development of Guelph's major social institutions and organizations.
