Biographical history

The Amateur Athletic Union of Canada (AAUC) was instituted in Montreal in 1884 to assist in the promotion and supervision of clean, wholesome, vigorous competition for individuals desiring to participate in athletic activities. The Alberta Branch was founded in 1908 and represented many different sports groups. Byron W. Bellamy of Athabasca served as president and also as secretary-treasurer of the organization. Gradually sports organizations developed national and provincial organizations and withdrew from the AAUC. In 1971 the group voted to disband in favour of Sports Alberta.
