History / Biographical
John ["Jack"] MacAulay (1918 - 2000) was born in Banff to parents Ella Maud [Woodworth] MacAulay and the late John MacAulay. Jack also had a twin brother, Thomas ["Ted"] MacAulay (1918 - 1984). Jack and Ted's father, John, died in an accident in November 1917, prior to their birth. Following the marriage of their mother, Maud, to Forest Kidney in 1923, Jack and Ted were raised together in the Kidney family residence in Banff. Jack was an avid hockey player during his teenage years; following an accident in 1940, however, a serious injury to Jack's right eye prevented him from competing. From 1943 to 1945, Jack worked for Boeing Aircraft of Canada Ltd., and in 1946 he was appointed as the Chief Inspector of War Assets for Alberta and the Yukon Territories. In March 1946 he met Karin Wallensteen, and the two were married in October of that year. Jack and Karin had 6 children together: sons Herb and John, and daughters Karen, Shelley, Jodi and Julie-Ann. Throughout his life, Jack remained an active member of Banff's sports community. Jack served as a coach for the Banff Minor Hockey League for 46 years. Jack also took on several other positions within the Bow Valley community, including work as a volunteer with the Banff Figure Skating Club, a co-founder of the Banff Recreation Board, and a member of the Banff Advisory Council, the Banff Hospital Board and the Banff School Board.
Scope & Content
File consists of 7 photograph prints [including one duplicate] pertaining to Jack MacAulay's childhood and young adult years, and 6 photographs of Mary and Margaret Simpson gifted to Jack by Mary Simpson.
