What’s in a Name? explores the nominal backgrounds of many prominent towns, cities and regions in Alberta. It also provides a glimpse into the lives of the many men and women who have participated in Alberta history and molded the political landscape of the places investigated. Members of Parliament, Senators and Judges are catalogued with details about their riding, the party they align themselves with, their occupation and more. This work spans the history of Alberta from its induction into Canada as a province in 1905 to the end of the Social Credit era in 1972.
