Memorable Manitobans: Joseph Henry Hall (1881-1919)

Athlete.

Born at Staffordshire, England on 3 May 1881, he emigrated to Canada where he lived at Brandon. On 3 July 1907, he married Clara M. Alexander (1883-?), a teacher at the East Ward School, and they had three children while living at Brandon. He played professional hockey from 1904 to 1919, winning the Stanley Cup twice, with the Kenora Thistles (1907) and Quebec Bulldogs (1912-1913). He played for the Montreal Canadiens in their first two seasons in the National Hockey League. Hall died at Seattle, Washington on 5 April 1919, of influenza contracted during the global pandemic, and was buried in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 1961, he was inducted posthumously into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
