Memorable Manitobans: Duncan Lloyd Cameron (1892-1957)

Lawyer, community activist.

Born at Calgary, North West Territories (now Alberta) on 19 November 1892, he was educated at Winnipeg public schools and articled in law with R. D. Guy. In 1914, he enlisted with the 27th City of Winnipeg Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and served overseas until he was demobilized, receiving the Military Cross (1918). In 1921, he graduated from the Manitoba Law School and established a private law practice at Manitou. He was Crown Prosecutor for the Southern District District since 1940 and was made a King’s Counsel in 1945. He was Provincial Chairman of the Royal Canadian Legion, served on the executive of the Manitoba Bar Association, and was President of the Manitoba School Trustees Association. In recognition of his community service, he received the Coronation Medal (1953). He died at Manitou on 5 February 1957 and was buried in the Garry Memorial Park.
