Memorable Manitobans: Joseph Alphonse Hudon (1886-1918)


Born in Quebec in September 1886, he had come to Manitoba by late 1910 and was working as an architect, with an office in the Builders’ Exchange Building at 333½ Portage Avenue, Winnipeg. He and wife Mina Janelle lived at 95 Notre Dame Street in St. Boniface and, by 1916, had three children: Joseph Leo Hudon (b 1911), Irene Hudon (1913-1920), and Cecile Hudon (b 1915). He died at St. Boniface on 10 November 1918, possibly of the Spanish flu, and was buried in the St. Boniface Cemetery.

Some of his architectural works in Manitoba included:





Richer Roman Catholic Church

Richer, RM of Ste. Anne



Transcona Fire Hall No. 2
