Memorable Manitobans: Fred Morgan (1877-1936)


Born in England, he held a BA degree from Durham University and was the Principal of Prudhoe Street School at Newcastle-on-Tyne before emigrating to Canada around 1911. He worked for a time as an accountant then re-entered the teaching profession, serving successively as the Principal of Inwood School, Brant School (1926-1929), and Gunton School (1929-1934). He was an active member of the Manitoba Teachers’ Federation. In 1934, he moved to Winnipeg and operated a grocery store on Ellice Avenue. He died at Winnipeg on 16 February 1936 and was buried in Brookside Cemetery.
