Anne J. MacArthur Public School 

Anne (Campbell) MacArthur (1909-1998) was born in Nassagaweya Township, raised and educated in the Milton community. After graduating from the University of Toronto and the Ontario Teachers College, MacArthur taught for nearly 40 years, including 27 years as an inspirational history teacher at Milton District High School. After retirement in 1973, she devoted many years to politics, becoming the first female Reeve for the Township of Nassagaweya (1969-1973), and then the first female Mayor of the newly annexed Milton after regional government (1974-1976). MacArthur was a prominent community advocate for Milton and devoted much of her life to the community. In 1970, she worked on the Pits and Quarries Legislation to protect the Niagara Escarpment. She became a founding member of the Niagara Escarpment Commission and served on the NEC from 1973-1987.
