Loyola College (Montreal)
Loyola College in 1937
|Location||Montreal, Quebec, Canada|
Loyola College was a Jesuit college in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It ceased to exist when it was incorporated into Concordia University in 1974. A portion of the original College remains as a separate entity called Loyola High School.
Loyola was founded in 1896, as the English sector of Collège Sainte-Marie (St. Mary's College, founded 1848). Frank Peden (architect) with Walter J. Murray designed several Loyola College buildings: Administration Building (1913-16), Junior Building (1913-16), dormitories (1913-16) and refectory (1913-16). 
War memorial bronze plaques in the entrance hall are honour rolls dedicated to those from Loyola College who fought in the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War. 
In 1964, the Loyola High School Corporation was founded to run Loyola High School separately from the College. When Loyola College merged with Sir George Williams University in 1974, title to the land that Loyola High occupied was transferred from the College.
Loyola was never a degree granting institution, instead, it started out associated with the Université Laval until 1920, from then on from Université de Montréal, until it merged with SGWU. Although associated with these universities in order to grant degrees, it nevertheless had full curriculum control. There was a quest to become an independent degree granting university in the 1960s (to become Loyola University), however the Quebec government deemed it a better idea to merge with SGWU. Merger talks began in 1968 and the merger was concluded in 1974. Today, the Loyola Campus remains as a campus of Concordia University.
Loyola Chapel 
|Concordia University Loyola Chapel|
|Location||7121 Sherbrooke St. W, Montreal, Quebec|
|Status||Theatre within Concordia University|
|Architectural type||Gothic Revival architecture|
|Style||Collegiate Gothic style|
The Loyola College chapel is a place of Catholic denomination worship for students, personnel as well as their families. The chapel is a classic example of gothic revival architecture. Charles William Kelsey created a twelve light stained glass war memorial window (1933) in the Loyola chapel. The windows depict the torture of the priests by North American Indians. In the dedication panel is written: "To the Greater Glory of God and In Memory of the Officers and Men of the 55th Irish Canadian Rangers." The Loyola Chapel has been converted into a theatre named the F.C. Smith Auditorium.
