Bennett was born in New Brunswick, where he was a school teacher and lawyer before moving to Alberta. He was elected to the House of Commons in 1911, and was prime minister from 1930 to 1935, interrupting Mackenzie King’s term. He died, unmarried, in England.

This feature was known as “Mount Goodell” in Climbers Guide to the Interior Ranges of British Columbia, 1937. But it had previously been renamed in the 1927 Premier Range proclamations.
