Memorable Manitobans: William Ashburner “Caribou Bill” Anger (1893-?)

Community activist.

Born at London, England on 24 March 1893, he came to Manitoba where he was the Circulation Manager of the Winnipeg Tribune until enlisting in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. He later operated a one-man museum at Cranberry Portage. In recognition of his meritorious service to Manitoba, in 1960 he was given a Golden Boy Award.
