Memorable Manitobans: Donald J. “Red” McIntosh (1911-1987)

Civil servant, businessman.

Born at Souris, Manitoba on 12 July 1911, he served in the Second World War as a heavy bomber pilot, receiving many commendations and medals from the governments of Greece, Italy and Egypt as well as the RA, RCAF and RAAF. At the end of the war, McIntosh joined the Government of Manitoba Resources Branch as Field Manager of Game and Fish Control. Eventually, he transferred to the Federal Government, overseeing an Economics Survey of the Northwest Territories in the Keewatin District. In 1964, McIntosh moved to the Yukon to administer its game assets, also running a successful hotel and continuing to act as a consultant to the Yukon Territorial government. He died on 9 December 1987.
