Memorable Manitobans: Helen Maude Dallas (1898-1993)

Singer, activist.

Born at Hastings, England on 12 April 1898, she came to Winnipeg in 1919 and studied music at Wesley College. Her musical career spanned six decades as she performed regularly on local stages ranging from the Walker Theatre to Rainbow Stage. In the 1940s she hosted a radio show on CKY. Dallas regularly performed for troops during the war and continued doing weekly recitals at Deer Lodge Hospital into her eighties. Later in life she became a green space activist in her Omand’s Creek neighbourhood. She died at Winnipeg on 26 May 1993 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
