    Biographical history

    Julie Hrapko was born in Two Hills County, Alberta, in 1927, the daughter of Thomas Hrpako (1899-1980) and Elizabeth Lutzak (1905-1984). She grew up in Two Hills, Egremont, and Smoky Lake before the family moved to Edmonton.

    She attended the University of Alberta, where she received a BSc in Botany. She worked the federal government as a seed analyst and microanalyst before returning to the University of Alberta for her Masters degree in plant ecology.

    She became the first permanent Curator of Botany at the Provincial Museum of Alberta in 1969, where she worked for twenty-five years until her retirement in 1994. In that role, she conducted botanical research, produced scientific research and outreach literature, and mentored new staff.

    She died in Edmonton in 2022.
