Memorable Manitobans: James Thomas Hulme (1864-1938)

Educator.

Born at Manchester, England in June 1864, he emigrated to Manitoba in 1888 and attended the University of Manitoba. During a 47-year teaching career, he taught at Prairie School (1894, 1897), Clairmont School (1903), Deer Range School, and Norfolk School (1911) and served as Principal of Elphinstone School (1915-1916), Rutherglen School (1919-1920), Sperling School (1920-1921), Langruth School (1921-1923), Austin School (1923-1924), Plum Coulee School (1924-1926), Warren School (1926-1927), and Holmfield School (1928-1933). He retired to MacGregor in 1935 and, the following year, he received an Edward VIII Coronation Medal in recognition of his community service. He and wife Anna Eliza Fluery (1881-1976) had two children: James Nelson Hulme (b 1901) and Anna Alice Hulme (b 1902, wife of Leslie Bowes). He died during a visit to Winnipeg, on 27 April 1938, and was buried in the MacGregor Cemetery.
