History / Biographical
David Malcolm Cheesmond, 1952-1987, was a mountaineer and engineer at Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Cheesmond's mountaineering achievements span the globe and include all facets of climbing. Included are ascents in South Africa (where he was born), Europe, South America, Canada, United States and Asia. From 1981 until his death, Cheesmond lived in Canada and made many ascents here.
In the Canadian Rockies, Cheesmond led a team of young climbers known as "the Wildboys" and made important climbs on Mount Robson (1981), Mount Assiniboine (1982), Mount Goodsir (1983), Mount Andromeda (1983) and the North Twin (1985). He opened three difficult new routes on Mount Yamnuska during the summer of 1985. During his time in Canada, Cheesmond took part in expeditions to Alaska, Mount Everest (1983, 1986) and K2 (1986). In 1984 he was part of a successful team which climbed Rakaposhi in the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan, an ascent considered one of the finest achievements by Canadians in the Himalayas.
In addition to organizing and executing the above projects, Cheesmond maintained a professional career in engineering. He was accompanied on many of his travels by his wife, Gillian. The couple had one daughter, Tserin. Dave Cheesmond disappeared in 1987 while attempting the Hummingbird Ridge on Mount Logan.

History / Biographical
Norman Bethune Sanson, 1862-1949, was a naturalist, meteorologist and museum curator at Banff, Alberta, Canada. Born in Toronto, Ontario, the son of a prominent clergyman, he developed a life-long interest in natural history as a boy. Sanson came west in 1885 to fight in the Riel Rebellion as a member of the Queen's Own Rifles.
In 1892, Sanson came to Banff as an accountant for the Sanitarium Hotel. He also did book-keeping for other local businesses and handled the town's weather reports. In 1896 he was appointed curator of the Park Museum and also worked as zookeeper for the Banff Zoo. From 1896 until 1931, Sanson was meteorological officer and curator of the Park Museum. In 1903 an observatory was built on Sulphur Mountain on a site chosen by Sanson. During the period 1903-1931, Sanson made one thousand ascents of Sulphur Mountain to collect weather records. In 1948, the Dominion Government acknowledged his many years of service by naming a peak on the mountain for him.
As a nature enthusiast, Sanson was well-known both in Banff and beyond. He was an avid collector of flora and fauna, both privately and through his job as museum curator. Sanson was an active member of the Alpine Club of Canada, the Skyline Hikers of the Canadian Rockies and the Banff Rotary Club. He was a warden of St. George's Anglican Church and a supporter of the Canadian Bible Society.

The Mather family were boat house operators at Banff, Alberta, Canada. William Mather, 1868-1927, emigrated to Ontario from Scotland in 1880 and came west ca.1888 to work for the Eau Claire Lumber Company on the Spray River near Banff. He worked for Raymond M. Rooper's boat house business on the Bow River and, in 1899, purchased the business. The Mather business included steamer tours in the summer and also involved winter sports on the Bow River. William Mather and Margaret McRavey Mather had four children, Jennie, Leslie, Allan and Hazel. With William Mather's death in 1927, the family incorporated its interests as the Bow River Boat House Limited, with Allan Mather as manager. The operation expanded to Lake Minnewanka in 1939. After Allan Mather's death in 1951, the business was sold to Ed Mader
