Memorable Manitobans: Robert William Dunlop (1876-?)


Born in Townsend County, Ontario on 13 June 1876, son of John and Jean Dunlop, he came to Manitoba with his family and resided at Birtle, working as a commercial traveller. He later taught school and was the Principal of Dominion City School (1909-1910), Stockton School (1917-1918), Baldur School (1918-1921), Kelwood School (1921-1922), Graysville School (1922-1924), and Ochre School (1924-1928).

On 16 July 1917, he married Alberta Mary Hearn (1895-?) at Brandon. At the time of the 1921 federal census, they had three children: Jean Dunlop (b 1918), Robert Dunlop (b 1919), and John George Dunlop (1920-1941). By the early 1940s, Dunlop was living at Foam Lake, Saskatchewan. There whereabouts after this time are, as yet, unknown.
