The Liberals in Power in Alberta 1905-1921
A compilation of Alberta provincial and federal candidates from 1905-1921, a time dominated by the Liberal Party. Brief biographical accounts of each individual serve to portray Alberta's history through the actions and interactions of the politically inclined. As a reference material, Alberta Liberals in Power is structured to be both comprehensive and accessible to any casual or professional researcher. It examines the backgrounds of statesman without the intrusion of partiality that political texts often fall prey to. Compiled by Dr. Ernest Mardon and Dr. Austin Mardon, C.M. as part of a larger opus on the histories of Alberta's politicians.
