Memorable Manitobans: Albert George Finkbeiner (1892-1924)

Lawyer, civil servant.

Born on a farm in the Rural Municipality of Turtle Mountain on 13 August 1892, son of Frederick Finkbeiner (1858-1934) and Mary Anna Schnarr (1866-1952), he served with the Canadian Artillery during the First World War. Aggravation of a wound received during active duty eventually led to his death. Returning from overseas, he practiced law at Brandon. On 7 September 1921, he married Jessie Fleming Williamson (?-?) at Winnipeg and they had one child. In January 1924, he was appointed Deputy Clerk of the Manitoba Legislature. He died at Winnipeg on 17 May 1924 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
