Memorable Manitobans: Arthur Beliveau (1870-1955)


Born at Mount Carmel, Quebec on 2 March 1870, son of Jean Baptiste Beliveau and Apoline Coulomb, brother of Hormisdas Beliveau, in 1882 he came with his family to St. Boniface where he entered St. Boniface College. He studied theology at the Grande Seminary at Montreal, was ordained a priest in 1893, and entered the Canadian College in Rome, returning to St. Boniface in 1895 with a doctorate in theology. On the death of Archbishop Langevin in 1915, he was named his successor. He fell ill in the early 1930s and retired from active clerical work in 1933. He died of a heart attack at the St. Boniface Hospital on 14 September 1955.
