Biographical history

Gwilym Isaac was born in England and trained as an Anglican clergyman. He came to Canada under the auspices of the Archbishop's Western Canada Fund to work in Alberta. He was first based in Cardston and worked in the Coutts/Warner region and among the Bloods and Peigan. In 1918 he transferred to Lac la Nonne in the northern part of the province. He was married and had at least one daughter, Mrs. P. Botsford. He later returned to England. For further information see David Carter's article "Archbishop's Western Canada Fund" in Alberta History. - vol. 16, no. 1 (Winter 1968), p. 10-17.
