History

Stephen Wilk was the coordinator of the Mount Royal History Project and a former teacher of psychology and sociology at Mount Royal College during the 1950s. The goal of the Mount Royal History Project was to research the history of Mount Royal College to produce a book for the college's 90th anniversary. As Project Coordinator, Wilk acted as the photo page editor and conducted interviews of former Mount Royal students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Wilk acted as the Project Coordinator of the Mount Royal history project from 1996 to 2004 and produced a complete but unpublished manuscript entitled "An Institution and its Communities: A History of Mount Royal College 1910-2000."

Wilk held a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, a Bachelor of Divinity, and a Doctor of Ministry, and was a historian primarily focused on the history of Alberta. He was an active member of several local historical societies including the Nose Creek Historic Society, and was involved with local archives, museums, and heritage preservation efforts. He was the author/editor of several books on local history including "One Day's Journey", a history of the Airdrie District, "Pioneers of Faith", a history of the Airdrie United Church, and "100 Years of Nose Creek Valley History".

In addition to his work as a historian, Wilk was a United Church of Canada minister (since 1952) and served as a medic with the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II. Stephen Wilk died on November 12, 2006.
