    Biographical history

    Gordon Miniely was born in Bonnyville, Alberta in 1939. His family moved to Edmonton in 1951, where he attended University High School. He became a chartered accountant, working initially for the Edmonton branch of the Department of National Revenue before establishing his own firm in 1969. He married Jeanette Dodd in 1962. He served on the boards of several community organizations, including St. John's Anglican Church, the Indian-Eskimo Association, and the Royal Glenora Club.

    He was elected as a Progressive Conservative MLA in 1971 for the Edmonton-Centre electoral district. He served as Provincial Treasurer (1971-1975) and Minister of Hospitals and Medical Care (1975-1979). He retired at the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly in 1979.

    After leaving politics, he returned to his chartered accountancy firm and became a supporter of the Alberta Liberal Party.
