Biography

Etta Maud (Maude) Lockley Gibson was born to prominent newspaperman and Civil War Veteran, Fredrick Lockley (1824-1905), and Elizabeth Campbell (1843-1929) in 1867.[1]

On January 30, 1889, Maud married influential Montana architect Albert John (A.J.) Gibson. A.J. 's most notable works include Main Hall on the University of Montana Campus, Missoula County Courthouse, and Carnegie Public Library in Missoula.[2]

Maud and A.J. are often referred to as pioneers of Missoula, Montana. The couple had the third automobile in the Western Montana town, utilizing the new technology to travel far and often after A.J. retired from architecture in 1909.

Maud was a member of the local Montana State Bitter Root chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in which she was the chapter’s chairman of the Committee for the Preservation of Historic spots. She has been described as a spunky and social character. She took interest in photography and joined a photography group headed by another influential Missoulian, Rollin H. McKay. Maud was a very talented photographer and took many photos of her travels. She enjoyed using her photos to tell a unique story of life in Western Montana, including those of the Salish and Kootenai people on the Flathead Reservation.

Maud and A.J. tragically died on New Years Eve of 1927 in an automobile-train collision on Dakota St. in Missoula, Montana[3]
