Name of creator
Alexander E. May (-1932) was a Carberry business owner. He was born in Ontario and died in Edmonton, Alberta. His parents were Ellen (Essaw) May and John May and he had a brother Charles. May moved to Edmonton in 1904, where he was postmaster until 1913. He married Elizabeth Reid in 1890 and one of their sons was pilot Wilfred Reid "Wop" May. May dissolved a business with Arthur Mack in 1898, and began an implement dealership, called May & Hunt, in 1890. This business he sold to Fred Tilk in 1902. He and his brother built the May Block in Carberry. May ran for federal election in East Edmonton as a Liberal in 1917, had served on Carberry Town Council in 1897, 1899-1900 and was Mayor of Carberry between 1901-1902.
