Memorable Manitobans: W. H. “Harry” Morgan (c1899-1961)

Municipal official.

Born in England, he came to Canada in 1903 and resided for several years at Ottawa, Ontario. He came to Winnipeg around 1920. A community leader for most of his life, he was Provincial President of the Manitoba and North-Western Command of the Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans Association of Canada. He was completing his first term as Mayor of Assiniboia when he died of a heart attack at his home on 16 September 1961. He was buried in the Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.
