Name of creator
Kenneth A. Price was born in London, England in 1869 to Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Adam Price. He likely pursued higher education at Oxford before emigrating to Canada in 1887. He homesteaded as part of the Cannington Manor settlement near Moosomin, North-West Territories. He left homesteading to run the livery stable at Cannington Manor. His parents and sister moved to the area in 1889.
Price became the first secretary of the Rural Municipality of Martin No. 122 in January 1913. During the First World War, he served as a Captain with the 9th Canadian Mounted Rifles. Upon return from the war, Price became the Postmaster at Moosomin and served until his retirement in 1949. He was also President of the Saskatchewan Postmasters' Association and head of the Canadian Postmasters' Association. Price was also active in his community, particularly with the Badgers Moosomin Intermediate hockey team and as a member of the Masonic Lodge. Price died in 1964.
Price married Helen Mary George in 1904. They had five children: Ethel, Guy, Arthur, Douglas, and Phyllis.
