Memorable Manitobans: J. C. Hay (?-?)

Educator, physician.

He earned a second-class teaching certificate (1892) and attended Trinity College (1893) in Toronto, Ontario. Between his studies, was taught briefly in rural Manitoba, including service as the Principal of Oakwood School (1894) at Oak Lake. Following a transfer of primary course credits, he enrolled at the Manitoba Medical College in early February 1894, wrote intermediate and final examinations, and graduated in 1895. In April 1895, he left Winnipeg to establish a medical practice at Hamilton, North Dakota. His later whereabouts are presently unknown.
