1951 - Students Dedicate New Gym

War Memorial Gymnasium is built and dedicated to the men and women of British Columbia who served in the First and Second World Wars. The construction and funding of the new facility is led by students. The gym is designed in part by a UBC architecture alumnus, Ned Pratt, who was the first Olympic medal winner from UBC, winning a bronze for doubles rowing at the 1932 games hosted in Los Angeles.
