Biographical history

Roland (Rollie) Jamieson, born in Calgary, 1914, came to the Salmon Arm area as a boy of 10 years. He was the eldest of six children. Obliged to leave school in grade 10, he became a plumber's helper for M.M. Carroll and in 1945, Roland took over the Carroll & Co., plumbing and heating sheet metal works.

After retirement from his plumbing and heating business in 1979, Jamieson pursued his neglected interest in history and recorded many stories of Salmon Arm and its more prominent people. The collection primarily consists of his manuscripts and research material and notes.

Roland Jamieson and his wife, Marjorie’s Critchley (1921-1977) had five children: Susan (Ward), Mary (Paul), Nancy (Burke), Joanne (Gollan), and Lawrence. Following Marjorie’s death, he married Jean Davies. Roland Jamieson died February 16, 1999.
