Biographical history

Bond, Margaret Joy 1915-1972
Bond, Victor 1880-1961

Margaret Joy Bond was born and raised in Edmonton where she worked variously as a teacher and typist.

Margaret’s father, Victor P. Bond was part owner of the Bond-Adams Company Limited, a real estate investment company, originally based in Port Arthur, Ontario. The company moved its head office to Calgary prior to the First World War and also had an office in Sudbury, Ontario. The Calgary office dealt directly with the many clients and companies involved in land speculation in western Canada at the time. Many of the clients were from the mining districts of northern Ontario.

Victor Bond later owned a tailor business in Edmonton, V.P. Bond and Company.
