Memorable Manitobans: Michael George Lysenko (?-?)


A former resident of Winnipeg and Brandon, son of G. Lysenko, he graduated from Brandon College in 1939 (BA), received a diploma in education from the University of Manitoba in 1940 and attended Iowa State College (PhD). After teaching at Roland, Manitoba, he began instructing at St. John’s College and in the Department of Zoology at the University of Manitoba. In 1950, he was named Assistant Professor in parasitology at the University of Wisconsin. His academic awards included an Isbister scholarship and the Dr. Fletcher Gold Medal (University of Manitoba). He and his wife Reta Treble of Crystal City had two children: Celia Anne and Michael.
