Who Was Albert Keeler?
Keeler School is named after Albert Keeler, a past resident of the area who also donated the land where the school is located. Mr. Keeler was born in Dover, England in 1906, and his family emigrated to Canada in June 1919. He lived on 36th Street S.E. and attended the Bow River School in Forest Lawn. During World War II, Albert Keeler was a stoker in the Royal Canadian Navy. Forest Lawn was a separate community from Calgary until 1961, when it was annexed to the city.
For many years, Mr. Keeler was town councillor and a school board member in Forest Lawn. He was one of the original members of the Forest Lawn Community Association. He was also an active member of his labour union and a valued member of St. Luke's Anglican Church. Mr. Keeler died May 12, 1967.
