History/Biography
George Alford Grant was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on June 22, 1877. In 1907 George married Alice Taylor of Stonehaven, Scotland. Three of their children were born in Edinburgh; William (1908), George Jr. (1910) and Herriot (1912). By 1912 George Grant had secured a job in Burnaby at a law office (eventually he established his own law firm of Grant and MacDougal) and brought his family to join him. While in Burnaby, Alice and George Grant would have two more children; Alastair and Millie. During World War One, George served in the 11th Irish Fusiliers of Vancouver, attaining the rank of Captain. Upon returning to Burnaby, George would go on to have a long and distinguished career, serving for over 43 years holding both official and unofficial offices in Burnaby – a record of service that would eventually result in him receiving not only local recognition but also the Order of the British Empire. Between 1921 and 1931, George sat on the Burnaby School Board and also served as the Municipal Solicitor in the 1930s. Alice Grant became a life member of the Provincial Chapter of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire (as well as the Col. Hart McHarg Chapter) in 1935 and George was a Burnaby Police Magistrate (for 13 years) until 1954. During this time he was recognized for his patience and fairness and the BC Borstal Association benefited from his active interest for many years. George also served as chairman of the West Burnaby Liberal Association from 1925 to 1938, heading the New Westminster Federal Riding Association in 1938. In January 1955 he was presented with the Gold Key award by the Municipality of Burnaby. Alice Grant died in May of 1954 and her husband died ten years later on April 30, 1964.
