Memorable Manitobans: Charles James Jamieson (1854-1940)

Physician, curler.

Born at Ottawa, Ontario on 9 January 1854, he graduated from McGill University in 1879. He had been practicing for three years in an Ontario lumber camp when he visited a brother living in Winnipeg. He decided to stay and set up a medical practice, opening his first office on Pacific Avenue. At the time, there were 15 physicians in the city, for a population of 15,000 people.

He and wife Mary Isabella Stuart Edwards (1858-1940) had four children: Frederick Lawrence “Fred” Jamieson (1887-?), Charles Norman Jamieson, William Francis “Frank” Jamieson (1892-1918), and Isabel Ann Jamieson (1895-1986, wife of Arthur William Sellers, mother of Frederick William Sellers). A keen curler, he was one of the first members of the Thistle Curling Club and served as President of the Manitoba Curling Association (1903-1904). He was one of the early members of First Baptist Church.

He died at his Winnipeg home, 774 Wellington Crescent, on 27 June 1940.
