Name of creator
Norman T. Macleod, 1863-1949, known as Norrie, was born in Ontario. He came to Fort Macleod, Alberta in 1880 to join his uncle, North-West Mounted Police (NWMP) Commissioner, James F. Macleod. He worked for I.G. Baker until it was taken over by the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) in 1885. He then moved to Lethbridge to manage the HBC store there. He married Margaret Sherlock in 1892, and they had four children. He was the secretary of the Southern Alberta Sheep Breeders from 1918 until 1939 when he retired. Although he never belonged to the force, he was an acknowledged expert on the NWMP.
