Memorable Manitobans: A History of Manitoba: Its Resources and People

by Prof. George Bryce
The Canadian History Company, 1906.

This collection of biographies of Manitobans was compiled by the Canadian History Company, and published at Toronto and Montreal in 1906. Most of those featured in the book were living at that time, so no information on death dates was provided. Where possible, these have been added to this online version.
