Jamieson Place honours these champions
Alberta & Calgary Historical Figures
These individuals that were important to Calgary & Alberta history were featured in the 2015 student essay & multimedia project contest:
- Alice Jamieson
- David Crowchild
- Eric Harvie
- Patrick Burns
- R.B. Bennett
- James Macleod
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.
