In 1893, Lord Stanley—a keen sportsman— donated the Stanley Cup as an award for Canada’s top-ranking amateur hockey club. Returning to England, he became the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and the first chancellor of the University of Liverpool. During the last years of his life, he increasingly dedicated himself to philanthropic work.
A monument honouring Lord Stanley and dedicating Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, reads, "To the use and enjoyment of people of all colors, creeds and customs for all time."
