Memorable Manitobans: William Stanley “Bill” Lockhart (1896-1978)

Educator, school inspector.

Born at Listowel, Ontario on 24 July 1896, he moved with his family to Selkirk where he was raised and educated. After attending the Central Normal School in 1913, the next year he began a life-long career in education, first as a teacher and later as Principal of Brant School (1917-1920), Woodnorth School (1924-1926), King George School (1926-1928), Central School (1928-1932) and Earl Haig School (1931-1938) and, as of 1938, as a School Inspector based at Baldur. He retired in the summer of 1963 and was succeeded by G. A. Guilbault, former Principal of the Lorette High School.

On 27 June 1925, he married Phyllis Garside Holt. They had three children: Ileen Lockhart (wife of Bob Brydon), Shirlee Lockhart (wife of Mike McCoy), and Keith Lockhart. He was a member of the Masons (Glenboro Lodge) and Baldur United Church.

He died at Baldur on 26 March 1978.
