Memorable Manitobans: Wilson Floyd Green (1905-1982)


Born at Dominion City on 20 July 1905, son of George Green and Elizabeth McPhail, he was associated with the international Lone Scout movement until 1930, for which he studied the economics and causes of the Great Depression, publishing his findings in 1935. From 1970 to 1973, he was the Executive Director of the Manitoba Historical Society. He was also an active member of the Lord Selkirk Association, Point Douglas Historical Society, and Red River Valley Historical Society. From 1976 to near his death, he headed Alerted Canadian Alliance, a voluntary group of people “concerned about what is happening to Canada.” He died of cancer at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital on 18 September 1982 and was survived by a wife and daughter.
