History

Archie (Archibald) Benson (B.A.) was a lawyer who lived in Moose Jaw along with his wife Frances Emily Benson and children Douglas, Harold and Marguerite. Archie Benson was a partner of William E. Knowles ca.1913-1918. About the time Knowles was elected as an MLA in a June 1918 by-election, Benson moved to a solo practice. He was also an avid gardener with entries in various local fairs. Frances Benson appears to have been active in the community.

Between 1914 and 1918 they lived at 1079 3rd Ave NE and ca. 1918/1919 appear to have one of the first homes in Wellesley Park in the Wakamow Valley along the Moose Jaw River (Lot 1 - Wilton Ave on the corner of Riverside Drive South).

Archie Benson died June 29, 1963 and was predeceased by Frances Benson who died April 18, 1948.
