Order of Canada

Mary Belle Barclay, C.M., B.A.

Calgary, Alberta [Canada]

Member of the Order of Canada

Awarded on June 29, 1987; Invested on October 28, 1987

A former teacher and an ardent conservationist, this Calgary resident was a co-founder, with her late sister, of the Canadian Youth Hostelling Association in 1933. From a shaky beginning with a horse, two cars and a rented tent, the Association has become a network of some sixty shelters, serving Canadians and visitors from around the world.

Deceased on September 14, 2000
