    Biographical history

    Frederick Charles Jamieson was born on May 18, 1875 in North Gower Township, Ontario to James Jamieson (1834-1884) and Mary Ann Craig (1840-1925). He attended school his hometown as well as Kemptville, Ontario.

    He came to the Northwest Territories to homestead near Lacombe, but he moved to Edmonton in 1896 to study law under Judge H.C. Taylor. He was admitted to the bar of the Northwest Territories in 1899 and joined the law practice of Alexander C. Rutherford. He served as a private in the Boer War and later served as a colonel in the 19th Alberta Dragoons during World War I. He was commissioned to organize the 260th Canadian Rifles, which he commanded in Siberia.

He also served as a Conservative Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for the Edmonton electoral district from 1931 to 1935. In 1953, he received a life membership in the Edmonton Bar Association.
