Biographical history

Walter William McNaughton hitchhiked and cycled his way from Manville, AB to Berwyn, AB to start the Peace River Bible School in October 1933. The trip covered 900 kilometers. The school moved to Grande Prairie the next year and then to its permanent location in Sexsmith in 1935.

McNaughton was born ca. 1911. He worked as an electrician, an educator, and was a passionate evangelist, preaching at many schoolhouses and churches in the region. He went to university at the age of 56, receiving his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from the University of Alberta. He was married to Beth, who predeceased him in 2005. They had four children: David, Evangeline {Thiessen], Ruth [Enns], and Malcom.

McNaughton died in January 2006.
