1907

Elizabeth Bailey Price saw Alberta as a land of opportunity for modern women.
Born in Winnipeg, Elizabeth’s family moved to Calgary in 1893, where she trained as a teacher and taught across Alberta before changing careers, becoming a journalist with the Calgary Albertan newspaper.
Elizabeth would go on to write for the Calgary Herald and Canadian Press, and was an advocate for women’s equality in her work and through her service with the Women’s Institute of Canada and the Canadian Women’s Press Club.
