Memorable Manitobans: William George Richardson Hind (1833-1889)

Artist, explorer.

Born in Nottingham, England, he was the younger brother of Henry Youle Hind. In 1861-1862 he joined an overland party heading by Red River cart from Upper Fort Garry to the Cariboo, sketching all along the way. He returned to Winnipeg in 1869 and again sketched and painted. His painting of a Red River cart has been reproduced often. He spent his later years in New Brunswick.
