PE001574 - [Photographs of Grey Owl in Prince Albert and Riding Mountain national parks]

The album's photographs capture the noted Anglo-Canadian conservationist Grey Owl (1888-1938) at work. Born Archibald Belaney in Hastings, England, he came to Canada in 1906, working as a trapper and guide in northern Canada for many years. Over time, Mr. Belaney became passionately committed to the preservation of Canada's wilderness and its wildlife. He also began to take on an entirely new identity as Grey Owl, the son of a Scottish father and Apache mother. Under this fictitious First-Nations persona, Mr. Belaney became a well-known author, writing several successful books on conservation that provided him considerable fame in both Canada and England. In 1931, he became a conservation officer in Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba. He would later take on a similar role in Prince Albert National Park, where he would remain until his death in 1938. For more information, please see the entry on Grey Owl in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography (available online at http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/belaney_archibald_stansfeld_16E.html [accessed on 10 December 2018]).
