Memorable Manitobans: Joseph-Pierre-Michel Lecourt (1824-1913)

Architect.

Born at Quebec, he was educated at the Séminaire de Nicolet from 1840 to 1844, and then studied with Frederick Hacker as an architect. By 1852 he was designing buildings for the province of Canada, turning from the neo-classicism of his teacher to a neo-renaissance style. He came to Manitoba in 1873 as supervising architect for the Department of Public Works. He returned to Ottawa in the 1880s.

Some of his architectural works in Manitoba included:
