Memorable Manitobans: Julia Jane Murray Clark (1857-1919)

Community activist.

A daughter of Donald Murray, one of the original Selkirk Settlers, on 1 November 1882, she married fur trader William Clark. They had no children of their own but were active in promoting the work of child welfare agencies such as the Children’s Home of Winnipeg, on whose Board she served for 12 years, seven as its President. She died at her Winnipeg home, 261 Colony Street, on 8 August 1919 and was buried in the Old Kildonan Cemetery.
