Biographical history

Frank Glass (1908 - 2002), a longtime employee of the Saskatchewan Department of Highways and previously a machinist electrician, was very active in the Rosetown community as a volunteer, particularly in museum and archives work. He was instrumental in forming a Museum Board in the mid-1970s, and headed a Museum Archives committee until 1997. He received the Rosetown "Distinguished Citizen" award for his twenty-three years of effort. Mr. Glass was involved in establishing the Rosetown Eagle microfilm library, as well as setting up a collection of pioneer and historically important photos and family histories. In 1997, the Rosetown Centennial Library Board took over the archives program, on the advice of Mr. Glass in the interest of long-term continuity. Active in many community organizations, as well as photography and carpentry, he is especially remembered for the enormous quantity of photographs of Rosetown and district, which he acquired. Mr. Glass continued to live in Rosetown until his passing in March, 2002.
