Theodore Frederick Korner
(also Theodor)

1885 - October 19 1946

Member, Architectural Institute of BC
Instructor, Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts

Theodore Korner was born in London, England, and came to Canada in 1912 after working in Seattle, according to a biographical article on Korner by Donald Luxton in Building The West (pages 416-417). He had a falling out with the AIBC in a matter regarding payment of fees, and perhaps this is why he became employed by the art school.

He was a founding Faculty member at the VSDAA in 1925, teaching Design. He was an architect, registered as Number 76 with the Architectural Institute of BC. His address in 1928 was 516 B.C. Electric Bldg., Vancouver.

Korner was an accomplished architectural illustrator, and a number of his drawings are illustrated in Building The West. Additional biographical information is given as well. Korner died of a heart attack at the age of 61.
