Name of creator
Frederick Charles Jamieson was born in Carleton County, ON on May 18,1875. He taught school in Ontario for two years before migrating west in 1895, homesteading near Lacombe, AB. He moved to Edmonton to study law, first under Alexander Cameron Rutherford, with whom he later became a partner. His military career began with service in the Canadian Mounted Rifles during the South African (Boer) War, 1900-1901. He was an original member (1906) of an Edmonton formation of the Canadian Mounted Rifles, later named the 19th Mounted Rifles, then the 19th Alberta Dragoons. He saw service in World War I as Lieutenant-Colonel commanding the 19th Alberta Dragoons at the front and in training brigades in Canada. In 1918, he took command of the 260th Battalion, Canadian Rifles, Canadian Expeditionary Force (Siberia), which saw service in eastern Russia, January -- May, 1919. He married Anne McLeod in 1902 and they had one son. In 1929 he formed a legal partnership, Jamieson & Jamieson, with his son. He was a Conservative MLA for Edmonton, 1931-1935. He was also a prominent member of the 19th Alberta Dragoons Association and the Historical Society of Alberta. He was the author of a history of the Alberta Field Force in the Northwest Rebellion and of other historical articles. He died October 4, 1966.
