    Biographical history

    Archie Jamieson was born in Valleyfield, Quebec in 1888. He studied mechanical engineering in Rhode Island from 1906-1910. After graduation, he lived in Rhode Island and Maryland before returning in Canada in 1913 to work for Consolidated Steel Company in Toronto. He moved to Fort Frances in 1923 but later returned to Toronto, where he graduated from the Ontario College for Technical Teachers in Hamilton, Ontario in 1927. He was then employed as a mechanical engineer and foreman at the Victory Gold Mine in Goldboro, Nova Scotia.

    He left Nova Scotia to work as a master mechanic at Althona Mine at Goldfields, Saskatchewan (now Uranium City) from 1935 to 1939. When the mines closed, he worked in mines in Goldboro and the Northwest Territories. In 1946, he moved to Walton, Nova Scotia.

    He married Rosamond Ihley of Milltown, New Jersey in Rhode Island in 1912, and together they had two children: John and Malcolm (Mack).
