In 1957, the Government of the Province of Alberta appointed a Royal Commission consisting of six commissioners headed by Senator Donald Cameron (1903-1989). The Commission was instructed to make a "comprehensive survey of the various phases of the elementary and secondary school system of the province with particular attention to programs of study and pupil achievement". The Commission presented its report to the Government on November 9, 1959. The report consisted of a majority presentation signed by five of the six commissioners and a minority submission signed by Commissioner John S. Cormack.
