Mount Talbot is located on the border of Alberta and British Columbia. It was officially named on 4 November 1925 after Senator Peter Talbot (1854-1919)(Geographic Board of Canada, 1928, p. 123; Karamitsanis, 1991, p. 243), an early pioneer of the Lacombe region of central Alberta. A teacher and farmer, he turned to politics and became an elected representative of the Northwest Territories and later the province of Alberta. In 1906 Sir Wilfrid Laurier appointed him to the Senate of Canada (The Lacombe and District Chamber of Commerce, 1982).
