Macdonald, Catherine Diane. "The Edmonton Grads: Canada's most successful team, a history and analysis of their success." Thesis (M.H.K.). University of Windsor, 1976.

AB: This thesis explores the history and analyzes the success of the Edmonton Grads women's basketball team which played from 1912 to 1940. The first portion of the essay focuses on the historical aspect of the team providing context for the second portion which attempts to establish rationales for how they managed to attain such a level of success. The author focuses in on three main factors which she considers to have played the greatest role in the club's achievements: the organization, the players and the single most important factor, as considered by the author, their coach and mentor, J. Percy Page.
