Memorable Manitobans: Frank Leggo (1857-1927)

Accountant.

Born at Hamilton, Ontario on 24 August 1857, son of William Leggo, he worked as an accountant for the Hudson’s Bay Company in Winnipeg from 1881 to 1913 when he retired to Victoria, British Columbia. He was one of the organizers of the St. George’s Snowshoe Club and the Winnipeg Canoe Club. He was also a well-known lacrosse player in his youth. He moved back to Winnipeg in 1926 where he died at his home, 277 Aynsley Street [now Arbuthnot Street], on 10 May 1927 and was buried in St. John’s Cemetery.
