Memorable Manitobans: Alfred Ernest Medd (1883-1946)
Born at Wolseley, Saskatchewan on 26 June 1883, son of George H. Medd (1850-1928) and Martha J. Axworthy (1851-1903), he moved with his family to Brandon at an early age. After graduating from the Manitoba Medical College in 1909, he moved to Winnipegosis where he set up a medical practice and also served as doctor for five nearby First Nations.
On 29 May 1914, he married Mary Agnes McArthur and they had five children: Howard Wilbur Medd (1915-1991, husband of Valdena Mae Stevenson), Eva Marie Medd (1917-2003, wife of Martin S. Olson), Edna Alexandra Medd, Dallas Sylvester Medd (1921-1987), and Peter Calvin Medd (1925-2001). Keenly interested in community work, he served as Chairman of the local school board, health officer, and a member of the Masonic and Elks lodges.
