Memorable Manitobans: John Marshall Nason (1887-1963)

Educator.

Born at Fredericton, New Brunswick on 4 August 1887, son of Wesley and Hattie Nason, he taught at schools in New Brunswick for a time before moving to Manitoba where he was Principal of Cypress River School (1914-1915), Deloraine School (1915-1920), and Virden School (1920-1924). In 1918, he attended a meeting to organize the Manitoba Teachers’ Federation. On 6 April 1915, he married Maidie Ellen Rutherford at Stonewall and they had two children, Natane Sinclair Nason Hughes (b 1916) and Marshall Rutherford Nason (b 1917). The family later moved to the United States where, in 1928, he got a doctorate in Education at the University of Chicago. Subsequently, he worked at the University of California at Berkeley and Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge. He died at Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1963.
