Custodial History
Milton Henry "Milt" Ward, 1890-1994, was born in Nogies Creek, Ontario. In 1905 he migrated with his family to Arrowwood, a community east of High River, Alberta. He assisted his father, and established his own homestead in the district at an early age. He also worked as a ranch hand and blacksmith. He became a manager in the Crowsnest Pass coal mining industry during the First World War, but returned to farming and ranching in the Arrowwood district. He served on the council of the Municipal District of Marquis from 1916 to 1941. He was an active member of the United Farmers of Alberta, serving as a director from 1932 to 1969, a delegate to the Alberta Wheat Pool, and a director of the Arrowwood Co-operative Association. In 1977 he was inducted into the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame. He was married twice, to Lena Steiner, ?-1923, and to Myrtle Foreman, 1903-1995. He had six children: Ruby Della (Fletcher), Audrey Helen (Neubauer), Shirley Margaret (Hood), Jack Foreman, George Alan, and Beverly Joan (Weeks).
