Memorable Manitobans: Rupert Magee (1874-?)

Real estage and financial agent.

Born at London, Ontario on 31 August 1874, son of Charles J. and Ida Magee, he came to Manitoba with his parents and settled at Brandon, where he received his early education. He then worked for three years in his father’s grocery store before becoming one of the first students of Brandon College. After graduation he took a clerical job in the Brandon post office, climbing over five years to the position of chief clerk. He then went into the real estate business in partnership with Hugh R. Cameron. He bought out his partner two years later. He also served as a cashier for the Confederation Life Insurance Company and later acted as their Brandon agent. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. He served as secretary of the Professional Baseball Club and the Real Estate Exchange.
