Name of creator
The United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada was incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1914. It perpetuates the memory of the colonists who remained loyal to the Crown during the American Revolution, many of whom subsequently became refugees in the British provinces of Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. There are branches of the Association throughout Canada.
The Fort Edmonton Branch was organized in 1934 by 17 prominent lawyers and doctors from the Edmonton area. The branch received its charter on 18 May 1937. Its first executive included Jermyn Oscar Baker, President, P.S. Bailey, Secretary, W.G. Stuart, H.T.(?) Baker, Charles H. Grant and Edward Price. The outbreak of World War II saw the demise of the Branch.
In the 1980’s some former members of the Fort Edmonton Branch attended meetings at the Calgary Branch. In 1987 these members formed the Edmonton Branch which has continued since that time.
This record was originally included with Northern Alberta Pioneers and Old Timers Association photographs (formerly EA-10-2589), but there is no documentation concerning its deposit in the Archives.
