Description

"Mount Sir Donald: At Glacier, Mount Sir Donald lifts its tremendous bulk against the sky. This naked and abrupt monolith, named after Sir Donald Smith (later Lord Strathcona), is 10,808 feet in height. Lord Strathcona was one of the group who were directly responsible for the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, 1881-1885."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 5--The Canadian Rockies; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
