Biography

When the bodies responsible for providing the operational frame-work for curling in Canada were in need of re-alignment, they quite naturally called on the skilled hands of Dr. Ed Steeves. This former Monctonian has devoted more than 30 years to the "roaring game," as club player, Brier and National Mixed competitor local and National Schoolboy Championship coach, event organizer, committee member, and the CCA's only two-time president. As International Federation Vice-President he is in the forefront in curling's fight for official Olympic status. Moncton honoured him in 1987; the CCA admitted him to its Hall of Fame in 1991. Now it's the turn of his province of birth to salute his contributions to the sport which, he gratefully acknowledges, gave him so much pleasure. Enrolled in the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, May 29, 1993.
