Memorable Manitobans: Lois Ada Dalrymple Logan Harvey (1891-1987)

Scholar, musician.

Born on the family farm near Lauder on 16 June 1891, daughter of Maria Martin Winton (1851-1937) and Robert Tremaine Logan, she attended Manitoba College in Winnipeg where she took a Gold Medal in Modern Languages (1913). She was awarded a travelling scholarship to study for two years in France and Germany but the First World War prevented her from taking it up. Instead, she attended the University of Chicago, receiving in 1915 a MA degree in Romance Languages and Literacy. She returned to Manitoba and, on 15 August 1917, married cleric Robert Harvey with whom she would eventually have three daughters and a son: Mary Aline Harvey Sexton, Willa Harvey Farr, Lois Harvey Dunn, and Arthur Gow Harvey. She retired to Brandon where she performed public readings and piano concerts. She died at Brandon on 26 March 1987 and was buried in the Brandon Cemetery.
