Ella May Walker Virtual Exhibit

Ella May Walker (1892-1960) was an Edmonton musician, artist, author and advocate for Edmonton’s history. She had a wide variety of interests and was very active in the local cultural life. She was also a working mother of two sons which was rare for her time.

Ella was instrumental in shaping the City of Edmonton Archives as well as many other Edmonton cultural and heritage organizations. Ella May Walker was chosen for City of Edmonton's first virtual exhibit, not only because of the richness of her material we have at the Archives, but also to acknowledge and celebrate her role in our history.
