Who Was David Thompson?
David Thompson, (1770 – 1857), was known as “The Mapmaker”. He was responsible for providing the first comprehensive geography of the Western Territories, which later became part of Canada in 1870. He charted the official boundary between Canada and the United States, from the St. Lawrence River to the Lake of the Woods. However, his greatest legacy is his explorations in Western Canada. He is a role model of exploration, both physical and intellectual, for the students who attend this school named in his honor.
