Memorable Manitobans: Adolph Dack [Dach] (1893-1975)

Pharmacist, historian.

Born in Germany on 1 September 1893, son of Christian Dach and Mary Kribe, his family came to Canada in 1898 and settled at Morden where he later worked as a pharmacist. During the First World War, he served for three years overseas in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. On 16 April 1921, he married Mary Revie (1897-1986) at Winnipeg. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, he served as President of the Pembina Hills Historical Society (Morden Historical Society). In 1970, he received a Manitoba Centennial Medal from the Manitoba Historical Society in recognition of his “many years of interest in the history of Manitoba and his work in founding the La Verendrye Park and Lake Minnewasta Park.” He died in 1975 and was buried in the Morden Hillside Cemetery.
