Name of creator
Andrew Tatham of Fulmodeston, Fakenham, Norfolk, England, is an historian and the great-great-grandnephew of T.S.C. Lee. Thomas Somerville Charters Lee, 1858-1926, was the son of William Lee, D.D., a professor of church history at Glasgow University in Scotland. He was educated at Fettes College in Edinburgh and undertook business training in London for a few years. In 1884 he emigrated to Calgary, Alberta, where he operated a ranch, and later became a real estate broker. With a partner he built and operated the Alberta Hotel in 1889. He was one of the original investors in the Calgary Brewing and Malting Company, and had numerous investments in land. He was the first and longest-serving president of the Ranchmen’s Club, and was a member of the Calgary Polo Team. Around 1906 he retired to Scotland. During the First World War he was involved in distributing relief supplies for the French Red Cross. He received several French awards, including the Legion of Honour.
