PLACE OF DEATH: Williams Lake, BC.
WHERE/WHEN ACTIVE: 150 Mile House/1910s.
STATUS: Commercial.
BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Wanda Story states in her "Meldrum Family Profile" Web page that John Thrift Meldrum was the son of Thomas Meldrum (1821-1889), the first permanent White settler in the Chilcotin region, and a Shuswap woman. According to Faith Moosang biography of C.D. Hoy, Meldrum took portraits of the Tsilhqotin (Chilcotin) people and White settlers. Based on the two privately owned photographs the author saw, he also took landscape views. Moosang (1999) states that his photographs are now lost.
Meldrum's age at death was 66; assuming Wanda Story's birth date is correct, he was actually 67.
COLLECTIONS/FORMATS: Private (prints).
IDENTIFYING MARKS: Stamp on verso of prints "Thrift Meldrum Photographer P.O. Box No. 42 150 Mile House, B.C."

Morant, Nicholas Everard.
LIFE DATES: 1910 06 29-1999 03 13.
BIRTHPLACE: Kamloops, BC.
PLACE OF DEATH: Calgary, AB.
WHERE/WHEN ACTIVE: Canada/1920s-1980.
STATUS: Amateur ; Commercial.
BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: The name Nicholas Morant is synonymous with 20th century photography of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The son of English immigrants, Francis George Morant and Mary Catherine Edith Wylde (Mollie), Morant grew up on a fruit farm in Kamloops. His father also worked as a game warden. Morant was schooled for a year in England and attended what is now St. Michael's University School, Victoria, from 1920 to 1928.
Morant's first employer was the Canadian Pacific Railway in Winnipeg where in started in 1929. He began moonlighting as a press photographer and subsequently was hired by the Winnipeg Free Press. After four years with the newspaper he returned to the CPR fold where he remained until his retirement in 1980. Morant had complete freedom, a condition he negogiated at the time of hiring, to set his own working conditions and standards. The rest, they say, is history and some of the most evocative images of Canada.
In his day, particularly in the 1940s and 1950s, Morant's distinctive style and use of colour was unequalled in Canadian railway and mountain photography. During World War Two he was on loan by the CPR to the Federal government and mainly photographed for the National Film Board of Canada's Still Photography Division. Some of his photographs from this period were turned into stamps. Morant photographed the Alaska Highway construction in BC in 1942, as well as west coast aerial and naval defense units. Another photograph of Mt. Burgess and Emerald Lake in the Rocky Mountains was used on the back of the $10 bill.
Morant secretly married Ivy (Willie) Young, his long-time girlfriend (they met in 1929), in 1936. They never had children as he was constantly on the road and she was his lifelong assistant. Along with being his photographic partner, she also managed the technical aspects of slide shows they presented across North America for 15 years. Willie died in 1986. The Morants' permanent home was in Banff, AB. Morant married Elizabeth Thomson in January 1990. He was awarded the Order of Canada on October 24, 1990.
