Ab: This brief biography with image chronicles the sport-related contributions of Eleanor Mountifield Vogelsong, who as captain of the all-girls Edmonton Grads Basketball team, lead her team to victory in the first Canadian national championship and brought international recognition in four Olympics. As symbols of Alberta pride, they also served as role models for working women, particularly during the hardships of the Depression.
