Memorable Manitobans: Herbert Irvine “Herb” Dunn (1924-2019)

Educator.

Born on 17 July 1924, he was wounded during military service in the Second World War. Following demobilization, he attended the Manitoba Teachers’ College and graduated from the University of Manitoba (BA, 1958). He taught in rural Manitoba, including at Fort Churchill School (1952-1953), Makinak School (1954-1955, Principal), and Mackenzie School (1955-1956), and was Principal of Brickburn School (1959-1967). On 20 August 1955, he married Stella Howelko at the All Saints’ Anglican Church at Whytewold, took up residence at Dauphin, and had a son, Theodore William “Ted” Dunn. In 1967, they moved to Medicine Hat, Alberta where both taught in the Medicine Hat School District No. 76. He died at Medicine Hat on 12 April 2019.
