Alberta & Calgary Historical Figures

These individuals that were important to Calgary & Alberta history were featured in the 2013 student essay & multimedia project contest:

We received many entries for each of these figures, though not all were necessarily featured among the winners’ projects.

We feature figures that were important to business history, political history, early settlement and exploration, community development, the First Nations, and to women in Calgary, as well as to the growth of Alberta as a province contributing significantly to Canada as a country.
