Memorable Manitobans: Roderick McLennan (c1866-1914)

Real estate agent.

Born in Scotland, he was a popular amateur lacrosse player in the early 1890s, being described as “one of the best lacrosse players in Canada”. In later years he was a supporter of the Victorias Hockey Club, and was a member of the Masons and Shriners. For many years he represented the interests of a Montreal fur company as a commercial traveller in western Canada. He left the firm around 1910 to go into the real estate and brokerage business. He died of pneumonia at his Winnipeg home, 219 Colony Street, on 2 April 1914.
