Damase Bouvier was born July 23, 1898 in St. Damase, Québec. He had eight siblings and his family moved to Massachusetts. At approximately age 14, Bouvier moved to Lac LaBiche, Alberta.
Early in his career, he worked as a train operator for the railroad on the line between Edmonton and Waterways, which has now been amalgamated into Fort McMurray. He later went into the poultry business in Northern Alberta until W.W.II. broke out.
Damase Bouvier had married Cecile Wilson and they had four children; one boy and three girls.
On January 10 1942, Bouvier was hired by the National Film Board (NFB) as a rural circuit projectionist to show NFB films to communities in Northern Alberta. In this position, he discussed with parishes what films were needed, advised film councils and taught people how to use film projectors. He later acquired professional recording equipment and produced a program named "Talent from the Towns." The program captured folk music from Northern Alberta and was aired on CKUA at the University of Alberta on Friday evenings. He was active in helping orphans during his time at the National Film Board as he would volunteer his time to show films for free to orphanages around Northern Alberta where he was working. He worked for NFB until he retired at age 65. In his retirement he made souvenir discs from his recordings and the souvenir discs were distributed to the people he recorded.
Damase Bouvier died November 23, 1977.
