Daniel McCowan, naturalist, lecturer, writer (1882 - 1956). After an early education in Scotland, he moved to Banff, Alta, where he soon acquired expertise on the local flora and fauna. His thousands of photographs of scenery, flowers, birds and mammals enabled him to travel widely, lecturing on nature in the Rockies, and he wrote extensively for several newspapers and popular magazines. His lectures on CBC Radio were among the first by naturalists. He was Fellow of the Zoological Society.
