Memorable Manitobans: Charles Dure (1864-1940)

Businessman.

Born at Cannington, Ontario on 20 September 1864, he came as a boy to Emerson, Manitoba, later moving to Hallock, Minnesota. From there he moved to Oregon then back to Hallock where he subsequently became manager of the Robertson Lumber Yards and then manager of the First National Bank. In 1906 he returned to Manitoba, settling at Winnipeg and remaining there for the remainder of his life. At the time of his death, he was Vice-President and Treasurer of the McDonald and Dure Lumber Company.

In 1891, he married Elizabeth Frances Putnam of Vienna, Ontario. They had no children. He was a member of the Conservative Club, the Carleton Club, the Elmhurst Country Club, the Winnipeg Board of Trade, the Lake George Hunt and Fish Club, and the Hallock Masonic Lodge. He went to Rochester, Minnesota for medical treatment and died there on 30 August 1940. He was buried in Hallock, Minnesota.
