Institutionele geschiedenis

The Leeds Architectural Society was established in 1876, with architect George Corson as its first President. The Society amended its name to The Leeds and Yorkshire Architectural Society in 1883 being formally affiliated to the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1891 and later in 1928 changed its name to the West Yorkshire Society of Architects. Members of the Society were instrumental in the formation of a Leeds School of Architecture in 1902.
