Name of creator
The Alberta Hotel, built in 1903 for Del Grierson, was the first major brick structure on Jasper Avenue. It featured Alberta's first elevator and was the hotel in which Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier stayed during the inauguration of the province of Alberta in 1905. It later became the property of McDougall & Secord Limited and was sold to Louis Lucas in the late 1940’s. The Lucas family ran the hotel until the 1980s. The hotel was dismantled and put into storage in 1984. It was rebuilt in 2012 on Jasper Avenue, near 97 Street.
Hannah Lister inherited the ‘ribbon’ from her mother-in-law, whose sister had received the ribbon when she first moved to Edmonton. It is not known how Milner & Steer (law firm) acquired the record.
