On the occasion of the conferring of the degree of Doctor of The University of Calgary, honoris causa upon George Hamilton Gooderham
June 1972

The following biography was obtained from the University of Calgary Gazette, May, 1972.

Mr. Gooderham, born on the Poorman Indian Reserve in Central Saskatchewan began his life among the Indians and throughout his life maintained a very close friendship and working relationship with them. Both the Blackfoot and Blood Bands made him an honorary Chief and he served on the executive of the Kainai Chieftainship, an organization limited to a number of prominent men made Honorary Chiefs by the Blood Indian Band.

Mr. Gooderham worked for the Blackfoot Indians from 1920, taking over from his father as Agent and later becoming Regional supervisor, a position he retained until his retirement in 1954. In 1955 he launched a new career with the Harvie Foundation, becoming the first employee of the Glenbow Foundation. Here he has put his vast knowledge of the Indian people and their history to work, writing stories and articles and building the Glenbow Collection.

Now he is working with the Riveredge Foundation, a private Foundation that grew out of the original Glenbow. His interests have touched the whole community, however, and he is past Director of the Provincial Association of the Canadian Mental Health Association, of which he organized the Calgary branch; a past associated Direct of the Calgary Stampede and Exhibition and Stampede Board and a past president of the Alberta Pioneers and Old Timers Association and the Men
