Biographical history

Ryerson College, a theological college established by the B.C. Methodist Conference, received its charter in 1912. Consultations with other denominations resulted in plans for a coordinated complex of buildings on the campus of UBC to house Ryerson College, Westminster Hall (Presbyterian) and a proposed Congregational college. Ryerson began offering courses in 1923, students and staff being accommodated in Westminster Hall. In 1927, Ryerson and Westminster were amalgamated to form Union College.
