Dates of existence


F.R.F. (Franklin Robert Fowler) McKitrick was born on December 9, 1875 in Orangeville, Ontario. He attended Normal School in Ottawa in 1894, taught for a short time in the Orangeville district, and then traveled to Alberta to join his brother A.G. (Austin Gordon) McKitrick who was a missionary on the First Nations reservation at Saddle Lake. McKitrick taught school at Whitford, Ray, Partridge Hill, Excelsior, and Poplar Lake between 1896 and 1903, and in 1901 he and his father claimed a homestead near Excelsior. In 1906 McKitrick returned to Ontario for a year then returned to Alberta to begin teaching in Southern Alberta. In 1909 McKitrick began a series of reporting trips through the province, working as a traveling correspondent for the Lethbridge Herald newspaper from 1909-1910, and for the Edmonton Bulletin from 1910-1911. McKitrick was an amateur photographer and took numerous photographs during his reporting trips as well. McKitrick continued to work for the Bulletin until 1919 and then began farming on his homestead. He gave up his homestead in 1923 and returned to teaching, also working for W.A. Foreman and Company, a road contractor. In 1932 McKitrick took up a homestead at Bay Tree, Alberta where he remained until 1952 when he moved to Edmonton. He died at St. Joseph's Hospital on December 18, 1957.
