Memorable Manitobans: William Maltman (1901-1971)


Born in England in 1901, he moved to Canada in 1917. He came to Winnipeg that same year and worked for a commercial printer, than from 1918 to 1925 for Brigden’s. He studied at the Winnipeg School of Art from 1921 to 1924. He spent much of his spare time sketching the scenery of Manitoba, often with Walter J. Phillips. Maltman left Winnipeg in 1927, moving to Chicago and New York before settling in Toronto as an artist. He died at Victoria, British Columbia in 1971.
