Memorable Manitobans: Edward James Marshall (1901-1964)


Born at Carberry on 14 March 1901, son of John Marshall and Catherine Spence, his family moved to Wellwood when he was young. Following completion of his education, he taught school in rural Manitoba, including service as the Principal of Ninette School (1943-1945) and Gunton School (1945-1946). In 1946, he moved to Winnipeg where he taught at Queen Elizabeth School and retired in 1961 as Principal of King George School. He died at his Winnipeg home, 293 Oakwood Avenue, on 4 May 1964 and was buried in the Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.
