Memorable Manitobans: Charles Russell Medland (1883-1970)


Born at Toronto, Ontario on 30 September 1883, he came to Winnipeg in 1915 when he was appointed manager of General Supply Company of Canada. In April 1923, in partnership with George T. Mumford (1881-1939), he founded the firm of Mumford Medland Machinery Limited and, until his retirement in 1960, he served as its President and General Manager. Later he was Chairman of the Board.

He and wife Catherine had three sons: E. R. Medland, Frederick Monteith Medland (?-1979), and W. A. Medland. He was a member of St. George’s Anglican Church, the Manitoba Club, St. Charles Country Club, and the Lakewood Country Club.

He died at Winnipeg on 20 July 1970 and was buried in St. John’s Cemetery.
