Joan Champ is a regular columnist in the Prince Albert Daily Herald Rural Roots edition.
Joan Champ wrote PAssages, a history column about Prince Albert, and followed that up with Railway and Main, a column about the history of hotels in Saskatchewan.
Champ’s love of stories led her to study western Canadian history at the University of Saskatchewan, earning a master’s degree. Her knowledge of history opened the door to a career at the Western Development Museum, rising to chief executive officer for all four museums.
Her award-winning history columns have been picked up by papers across Saskatchewan.
