Alywn Bramley-Moore (July 3, 1878 – April 4, 1916) was a provincial politician, author and soldier from Alberta, Canada. He served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta from 1909 to 1913 sitting with the Liberal caucus in government. After his political career he served in the Canadian Forces in World War I from 1914 to his death in 1916.

Political career[edit]

Bramley-Moore ran for a seat to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta in the 1909 Alberta general election as the Liberal candidate in the electoral district of Alexandra. In that election he defeated future MLA James Lowery in a landslide victory.[2] He served only a single term in the provincial legislature, sitting in the back benches. He retired at dissolution of the assembly in 1913.

Late life[edit]

After Moore retired from provincial politics he went overseas to fight in World War I. While fighting in the war he was shot by a German sniper in March 1916 and died in hospital on April 4, 1916. After his death a portrait of Moore was commissioned by Premier Arthur Lewis Sifton and was displayed in the legislature for many years.

Moore has become a hero to modern day Alberta separatists[citation needed] for his many quotations and writings on exploitation of Alberta by eastern Canada.
