Vancouver School of Theology was established in 1971, but its history began long before this. Vancouver School of Theology was born out of the amalgamation of Union College and the Anglican Theological College, both of which have been providing theological education since the 1920s.
Union College, which was one of the predecessors of Vancouver School of Theology, was founded in 1927 as a result of the amalgamation of Ryerson College, Westminster Hall, and the Congressional College of British Columbia.
The Anglican Theological College formed in 1920 when Latimer Hall (founded in 1910) and St. Mark's Hall (founded in 1912) when Latimer Hall and St. Mark's Hall consolidated.
This digital collection provides a brief historical overview of the beginnings of the Vancouver School of Theology and its predecessors from 1910 to 1995. One of the goals of this collection is to commemorate the move of the Vancouver School of Theology into its new building, which will be completed in Summer 2015. Comprised of materials unique to Vancouver School of Theology, it provides an important retrospective of the school at a crucial time of transition.
