Memorable Manitobans: Gerald F. Brophy (?-?)


In the 1880s, he practiced law at Winnipeg as a partner in the firm of Killam, Richards, Brophy & Vivian. His home on Roslyn Road was designed in 1887 by architect A. T. Timewell. He ran for a seat on the Winnipeg city council in 1893. He and his family moved to New York City around 1896. He was later General Manager of the Equitable Life Company, based on Montreal, Quebec.
