Memorable Manitobans: Annie Jeffrey (1857-1937)


Born at Edinburgh, Scotland in September 1857, she immigrated to Canada in 1909 and settled at Winnipeg around 1910. A widower by 1911, she had a married daughter, Mrs. J. Gibbs. She joined the Winnipeg School Division as a teacher at Greenway School (1910-1911), Clifton Street School (1911-1914), Laura Secord School (1914-1915), and Isaac Brock School (1915-1916). She became Principal of Isaac Brock School (1916-1917) during J. H. Mulvey’s military service, and upon his return, was made Principal of Argyle School (1917-1925). She was granted personal leave in July 1925 and moved to British Columbia, later resigning from teaching in 1927. She died at Vancouver on 11 November 1937.
