Portrait of Amédée Emmanuel Forget (1847-1923)

Amedée E. Forget [1847–1923] of Banff, Alberta, was Lieutenant Governor of the Northwest Territories from 1898 to 1905, and senator from 1911 to 1923. “Senator Forget and Mrs. Forget are in the old Bell-Irving house on Beaver Avenue,” said a Banff newspaper report in 1911, “while the Senator is having his lot at the corner of Buffalo and Muskrat cleared to build a summer bungalow. The Senator intends making Banff his summer home and Ottawa his winter residence.”
