Historia biográfica

Thomas Milton Williams, 1864-1947, was born in Cardinal, Ontario. He came to Calgary with his uncle, Will Williams, in 1882 after a journey by ox-cart from the railhead in Winnipeg. During the 1885 Riel Rebellion (North West Rebellion) he served with Steele's Scouts. He then farmed in the Glenmore district (now part of the Palliser subdivision in Calgary) until he retired to Sylvan Lake, Alberta in 1929. He and his wife, Katherine, (known as Katie), 1877-1947, had three children, John Edward, 1898-1927, George, 1900-1902, and Nellie May (Robbins), 1903-2003. Williams was the secretary of the Glenmore School District No. 14 for 30 years, and served as councillor and returning officer for Local Improvement District 221 in the Glenmore area for many years. Milton Williams School in Calgary was named in his honour in 1952 as a result of his contribution to schools and education in the city. The one-room school opened in January 1945, and was soon enlarged with three additional rooms and eventually a newer brick structure. The schools were demolished in 2005 to accommodate the widening of Glenmore Trail and a monument was erected on the site.
