Memorable Manitobans: Winnifred Dorcas Boughton (1900-?)
Born in England in 1900, daughter of Henry T. and Annie Boughton, her family emigrated to Canada in 1907 and settled at Winnipeg. She became a teacher and served as the Principal of Ladywood School (1926-1927), Oakville School (1927-1929), and Alexander School (1929-1932). She returned to Winnipeg where she lived with her parents at 275 Oakwood Avenue and taught at Hugh John Macdonald School until around 1946. Her whereabouts after this time are, as yet, unknown.
