Biographical history

Sharp and Thompson was a Vancouver architectural firm founded in 1908 by George Lister Thornton Sharp and Charles Joseph Thompson. The firm designed many buildings, including the master plan, Sciences Buildings, Main Library and powerhouse for the University of B.C.; the Vancouver Club; the Anglican Theological College at UBC, the Burrard Street Bridge, and a large number of residences; St. Mary's Church, Kerrisdale; the first Vancouver Art Gallery (1931).

After the retirement of George Sharp around 1940 and architects Robert Berwick and Ned Pratt became partners in 1945, the firm was renamed and continued as Thompson, Berwick and Pratt.
