Memorable Manitobans: William Dangerfield “Bill” Lount (1914-1997)

Architect.

Born at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on 14 April 1914, son of Frank R. Lount and Annette Bricker “Nettie” Lount (1891-1985), he moved with his family to Winnipeg and attended United College and the University of Manitoba, graduating from the latter with degrees in Engineering and Architecture. Following a brief apprenticeship in London, England, he returned to Winnipeg in 1938 and joined his father’s construction firm where he designed many buildings. During the Second World War, he served in the Royal Canadian Engineer Corps. He returned to Winnipeg and was active in residential and commercial land development, including in Silver Heights, St. James, Tuxedo, River Heights, and Windsor Park. He was a member of the St. Charles Country Club, Winnipeg Winter Club, and Manitoba Club. He died at Winnipeg on 7 July 1997.
