    Biographical history

    First Metropolitan of British Columbia (1915-1924), Frederick Herbert DuVernet, was born of Huguenot descent in 1860 in Hemmingford, Qubec. He graduated in theology from Wycliffe College, Toronto, in 1880, and later from King's College, Windsor, Nova Scotia, and proceeded to a Bachelor of Divinity degree. He became curate of St. James the Apostle Church in Montreal and Mission Preacher of the Diocese of Montreal. In 1885, he accepted the chair of Practical Theology at Wycliffe College. In 1895, he was appointed Rector of St. John's Church in Toronto. He was editor of the "Canadian Church Missionary Gleaner" from 1894 to 1901 and associate editor of "New Era" from 1901 until his consecration as the second Bishop of Caledonia (1904-1924). He served also as the first President of the Anglican Theological College of British Columbia (1912-1924). He passed away in 1924 after suffering a paralytic stroke.
