Memorable Manitobans: George Archibald Coulthard (1890-1964)


Born at Clearwater, Manitoba on 20 October 1890, he served in Canadian military forces during the First World War. Returning from overseas, he became a teacher, serving as the Principal of Clearwater School (1920-1923), Pilot Mound School (1923-1929), Treherne School (1929-1935), and Souris School (1938-1941). In 1932, he also received a BA degree from the University of Manitoba. Following his principalship at Souris, he became an instructor with War Service Incorporated. At the conclusion of the Second World War, he joined the staff of the Western Savings and Loan Association, from which he retired in 1961. He died suddenly, while curling at Toronto, Ontario, on 12 April 1964 and was buried in Clearwater Cemetery.
