Name of creator
Roy William Devore was born in 1891. He was appointed the first custodian of the John Walter Historic Site Museum in Edmonton, Alberta in 1959. He wrote “The Third Column” in the Edmonton Journal through the 1950’s and 1960’s. He also authored several historical articles and pamphlets. Roy William Devore died on 28 Nov 1969.
