Dates of existence


Thomas Kilpatrick (1857-1939) was an official with the Canadian Pacific Railway who was involved in the erecting of a monument to Douglas Hector, son of Sir James Hector, K.C.M.G., Geologist and Explorer to the Palliser Expedition of 1957-1860).
Kilpatrick was the Superintendent of the Mountain and Shuswap Divisions of the C.P.R. in Revelstoke, B.C. when Sir James Hector and his son Douglas arrived in their area on a trip in 1903. Soon, Douglas Hector became ill and was taken to the Revelstoke Hospital, where he later died of peritonitis resulting from a ruptured appendix. Shortly afterwards, a fund was established to erect a memorial in the Revelstoke Cemetery, and subscriptions were received from individuals in Canada, the United States, and Britain.
