Name of creator
CN “Cliff” Henderson was born in Thamesville, Ontario in February 9, 1889. In his early years he left for Detroit. In the early 1900’s he moved back to Moose Jaw where his brother Kenneth had started an insurance business. Henderson worked for a short time at the post office, and then in the insurance business. He became involved in the Children’s Aid Society, as well as becoming the president of the Saskatchewan Motor Club. Henderson was also skipper of the Moose Jaw curling team that defeated the championship Scottish team in 1949.
Henderson may have been best known as a hockey owner and executive. He owned the Moose Jaw Millers, and played a key role in helping fellow Saskatchewanian and Moose Jaw Millers left-winger Elmer Lach be signed by a National Hockey Team franchise. In 1961 he was presented with an honorary membership to the Pla-Mor Booster Club in Moose Jaw for “his outstanding contribution to sport.”
Henderson married his wife Nina Jessie McKillop in 1911. They had four children: Margaret, Art, Gordon, and Fraser. Fraser was killed in an airplane crash after the Second World War.
Henderson suffered a heart attack in 1942, and again in 1959. Eventually, he had a stroke in July 1961. Henderson died on October 28, 1963.
