Front: Publisher: A. H. Cooper, Toronto (ref. Cdn Patriotic and Heraldic Postcard Handbook Vol. 1 by Mike Smith). Background: Kemp began his career as an ambitious businessman whose accounting and managerial expertise turned his partnership in Montreal to success. Repetition of this pattern in Toronto opened doors. In 1900 Kemp won a seat in parliament. His service and pocketbook kept the Ontario Conservative party healthy in the lean years of the Laurier era. He carried out personal assignments for the prime minister before and during the Great War. One account said of Kemp that he was "seldom on parade, but seldom inactive and never inefficient." Kemp himself once attributed his success to energy and application. In effect, he was the ex officio minister of efficiency in Borden's governments. He left a large estate when he died in 1929. Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, he left an estate worth more than $7,700,000 - www.biographi.ca Back: Mr. A.E. Kemp Respectfully Solitics Your Vote and Influence.
