Memorable Manitobans: Archibald MacAulay (1887-1970)


Born at Morden, Manitoba on 26 September 1887, son of Finlay MacAulay (1842-1918) and Margaret MacDonald (1860-1930), brother of J. A. MacAulay and M. E. MacAulay, and brother-in-law of Andrew E. McGavin, he articled in law to Alexander McLeod, then practiced law with the firm of McLeod and Black for a number of years. It was later known as McLeod, Black and MacAulay, then finally as MacAulay and Westwood. He was made a King’s Counsel in 1935. By the time he retired in 1969, he had practiced law at Morden for over 50 years.
