As paid work and personal commitments keep me more than busy, my time for contributions to Forgotten Alberta has been nearing non-existent.
However, despite the fact I haven’t had an original thought in months, I have been honoured to have my previous works featured in a couple of Alberta publications during the past month.
Alberta Views magazine featured my piece on Dr. Alexander Scott of Bassano, renowned as Western Canada’s first flying doctor, in the November issue. You can read the original Prairie Post column here.
The Oyen Echo also ran my vignette on Cavendish casualty, Pte. John Harold Fenton, on the cover of their Nov. 8 edition. Check out the original here. Thank you to David McKinstry for making this happen.
I was also fortunate to be asked to contribute several articles to the most recent Lomond and District History Book, most of which are based on posts and articles originally published on this site. In the coming weeks I will republish some of these, the first being an updated history of the C.P.R.’s ill-fated Suffield Subdivision.
