Name of creator

Kennedy, Fred

Biographical history

Fred Kennedy, 1900-1988, was a Calgary Herald employee for 30 years. He was born in Dundee, Scotland and came to Canada with his family in 1912. He attended journalism school in New York City, USA; worked for the Calgary News Telegram and the Albertan; and then toured with a rodeo company as publicity director. In 1927 he began his career with the Calgary Herald and held various positions: police reporter, city editor, sports editor, agriculture editor and Alberta legislative correspondent. His stories on the Social Credit government were widely quoted and copied, and so angered Premier William Aberhart that Kennedy was frequently banned from press conferences. Despite the ban Kennedy managed to break important stories through his contacts with Aberhart's supporters and advisors. In 1957 Kennedy became publicity director for the Calgary Stampede, and in 1965 he began a 14-year column with the Albertan. He wrote his memoirs in Alberta Was My Beat: Memoirs of a Western Newspaperman / Fred Kennedy. - Calgary : The Albertan, 1975. He married Eugenie O'Neill in 1934 and they had three children. He owned, trained and bred racehorses, and was inducted into the Canadian Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1985.

Name of creator

Aberhart, William (1878-1943)

Biographical history

William "Bible Bill" Aberhart, 1878-1943, was born in Ontario. He studied at the Hamilton Normal School and was granted his BA from Queen's University in 1911. In 1902 he married Janet Jessie Flatt, 1878-1966, and they had two children, Ola (MacNutt), 1906-2000, and Khona (Cooper), 1904-2000. In 1910 they moved to Calgary, Alberta and Aberhart became a high school principal. He was principal of Crescent Heights High School, 1915-1935. He ran popular bible classes, and in 1925 began his Sunday afternoon radio broadcasts, called the "Back to the Bible Hour". In 1927 he opened the Calgary Prophetic Bible Institute, and two years later founded the Bible Institute Baptist Church. In 1932 he became interested in the monetary ideas of Major C.H. Douglas, who espoused state supervision of credit and dividend payments to citizens. He founded the Social Credit League, and in 1935 became the premier of Alberta when Social Credit swept the United Farmers of Alberta (UFA) government from power. The government was unable to implement Aberhart's proposed reforms because the legislation was disallowed by the federal government. Aberhart died in office. For further information see Bible Bill / David R. Elliott and Iris Miller. - Edmonton : Reidmore Books, 1987.
