Biographical history

This collection was compiled by Hugh A. Dempsey as part of a study of Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park instigated by Alberta Parks in 1973. Dempsey, who undertook a study of the history of the park, was one of a team of five. The topics researched by the other members were geology, soils, hydrology and resources. Dempsey researched the petroglyphs, native traditions and North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) activities at Writing-on-Stone.
