New book published on history of Alpine Club of Canada

20 August 2006

The Manitoba Section of the Alpine Club of Canada has published a history of the club in celebration of the 100th anniversary of its founding, in Winnipeg in 1906. Edited by Christine Mazur, Simon Statkewich, and David Relkoff, the book is a collection of articles describing the early years of the club (1906-1940), the “quiet times” (1941-1970), rebirth and growth (1971-1995), today and beyond (1996-2006). Some were written by early climbers and club members, including founding member Elizabeth Parker and prominent author Ralph Connor (aka Rev. Charles Gordon), and others were written by current members.

Copies of this paperback book are available for $18 at:

  • McNally-Robinson Booksellers (Grant Park)
  • Vertical Adventures
  • Wilderness Supply

The book can also be purchased directly from editor Christine Mazur (plus $3 for postage) by sending email to
