Memorable Manitobans: Eliza Briggs Dolmage (1889-1973)

Educator.

Born at Souris on 24 May 1889, daughter of John Dolmage and Mary Ann Hetherington (1862-1948), she attended the Provincial Normal School then taught at Souris School (c1915-1922) before heading to China, where she worked as a missionary and educator. She later returned to Winnipeg and taught at Victoria School (1928-1930), Victoria-Albert School (1930-1943), and John M. King School (1945-1949). In 1942, she completed a Kindergarten course at the Illinois National College of Education, then played a leading role in the implementation of kindergartens in the Winnipeg School Division. After retirement, she moved to British Columbia in 1956 where she died, unmarried, at West Vancouver on 5 April 1973 and was buried there.
