Anglican Theological College (1927-71) appears above the Main Library (now called Irving K. Barber Learning Centre) in a structure known as the Chancellor Building. Union College (later known as Vancouver School of Theology), with which ATC would merge in 1971, appears to the right of the library in what is called the Iona Building. VST and UBC announced in 2014 that VST had sold the Iona building to UBC. UBC planned at that time to house all or part of the Economics department in Iona, beginning in 2015. VST has temporarily relocated to St. Andrew’s Hall (a theological college of the Presbyterian Church in Canada). Chancellor was destroyed by VST in 2007.

    This post is a little confusing. Here’s a photo of the ATC, rather than Main Library. http://digitalcollections.library.ubc.ca/cdm/singleitem/collection/arphotos/id/353/rec/6

    VST is temporarily in St. Andrew’s Hall and will be moving into the renovated Somerville building shortly. Incidentally, St. Andrew’s is not one of VST’s “non-Iona properties” but rather a separate institution, although the schools are affiliated

      Thanks for the clarification on St Andrews. I’ll make a change to that a little later today.

      As for the photo of ATC, my intention was to put ATC in the context of a familiar building on campus; ATC appears above Main Library, as noted in my remarks below the image (and now, also, in the caption). Thanks for your comment and interest in the blog.
