Dates of existence


Richard Secord was born in Ontario in 1860. He graduated from Brantford Collegiate and travelled to Edmonton where he helped to build and teach in the first school. In 1886 he was employed by John A. McDougall as a store clerk and two years later established a fur trading post and store at Athabasca Landing. Pressure from the Hudson's Bay Company forced him to sell out to them by 1890. He then went into fur trading partnership with McDougall and prospered. He served as Edmonton member of the NorthWest Territorial Assembly in Regina from 1902-1904. He died in Edmonton in 1935.
