Potter Clubb, Sally (1917–92)

Born on February 6, 1917, Sally Potter graduated from Saskatoon Normal School and taught for four years in rural schools at Bounty, Pike Lake and Hoosier. She then returned to Saskatoon, where she married James E. Clubb on October 15, 1946; the couple had three children. Her seminal book, Saskatoon’s Historic Buildings and Sites (1973), co-written with W.A.S. Sarjeant, helped spur provincial legislation to protect Saskatchewan’s architectural legacy. Among her other published writings are: Saskatoon: The Serenity and the Surge (1966) and Our Story: 75 Years of Caring: St. Paul’s Hospital (1982). She also wrote a series of articles on ethnic groups in the province. Potter Clubb later worked as a supply teacher in Saskatoon and Delisle, and as a library assistant at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine. She also served on a civic committee to identify and list historic buildings and sites. She died on February 9, 1992, in Saskatoon.
