Memorable Manitobans: Alexander Henry Logan (1872-1964)

Bank manager.

Born at Winnipeg on 4 June 1872, son of Alexander Logan and Maria Lane, he attended St. John’s College then worked for the Commercial Bank until it closed. He found work with the Bank of Ottawa, being appointed manager of its branch at Emerson, Manitoba, later transferred to Mattawa, then to Portage la Prairie. On 26 November 1901, he married Ethel Jane Webster at Winnipeg. They had two children: Alexander Webster Logan (b 1903), and Helen McDermot Logan. A keen athlete, he was a member of the eight-oared rowing crew that won a championship at Philadelphia in 1901, and was skipper of the rink that won the Fort Rouge trophy at Emerson. He was interested in curling and shooting, winning medals in both sports. He was an instructor for the Portage la Prairie Rowing Club.
