Name of creator
W. J. Nutt was a long-time resident of Edmonton and the grand-son of John Grant. John Grant came from a family of fur traders active in Lower Canada from about the 1770s. He was born in Fort des Prairies, later known as Fort Edmonton, in 1831. His father, Richard "Handsome" Grant, was an employee of the Hudson's Bay Company at the time. John Grant was educated at Trois Riviere before joining his father who became chief factor at Fort Hall, Montana. He later worked as a trapper, trader and settler before returning to Canada. He eventually settled in Alberta and died in Edmonton, where he had been born, in 1907.
