Memorable Manitobans: Harold Frederick Maulson (1876-1952)

Lawyer, judge.

Born in Ontario on 16 November 1876, son of George Joseph Maulson, he worked as a lawyer at Minnedosa in partnership with E. B. Fisher, and he served as a Bencher for the Law Society of Manitoba from 1910 to 1919. In the latter year, he was appointed a County Court judge for the Northern Judicial District. He was later made a King’s Counsel. He was removed from the bench in 1928 for presiding while intoxicated, patronizing bootleggers who had appeals before him, and passing bad cheques. He and wife Mary Mulock (?-1971) had four children: George S. Maulson, Marjorie Maulson (wife of L. E. McMeans), Vivien Maulson (wife of G. F. Bonnycastle), and Phyllis Maulson (wife of R. N. Grassby).
